Career highlights: The creation of the Sustainability Hub is one of the highlights of my career because it has allowed the company to make a difference in the community and has helped thousands of customers with their energy needs. Additionally, we're able to interact with our customers in a different way and it's making a difference.

Community involvement: Recently, I volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Worcester, Working for Worcester and the Red Sox Foundation in Roxbury.

Ultimate career goal: To develop new, simpler and sustainable energy solutions so we can leave a better planet for our children.

Non-relative you admire most: Steve Jobs, former Apple CEO, not just because of the products he invented but more importantly because of his passion for simplicity. Simplicity is one of the principles I always try to incorporate in everything I do.

Favorite book: "Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us," by Daniel Pink

Hidden talents: I'm a computer geek and I love to use technology to create new things that make people happy or make their life easier (videos, apps, etc.).
