Ron is a Mechanical Engineer and Energy Analyst in the Energy Studio at Rushing. After a few brief stints in the manufacturing industry, he found his niche in the MEP space in Seattle and has experience in the HVAC, Plumbing, and Energy disciplines. Ron approaches his work with a passion for sustainable design and is primarily motivated by the global need to draw down emissions to preserve the Earth’s complex yet fragile ecosystems. He is interested in building emissions performance and the DOE’s Grid-interactive Efficient Buildings (GEB) initiative. Having grown up across three continents, Ron leverages his unique cross-cultural and cross-discipline experience to meet his client’s goals creatively.
Outside work, Ron enjoys various soccer events – whether a pick-up game or faithfully cheering on his favorite teams, the Seattle Sounders and Manchester United F.C., at a local pub. He also enjoys hiking & photography and strives to spend most of his weekends in the beautiful landscape of the PNW.
