Zac Coventry


 Zac Coventry likes to explore, grow things and build stuff.  He has crossed the equator more than 365 times on a bus and been a farmer of fine flower bulbs.  Since 2010 Zac has been exploring how to apply systems engineering principles to urban infrastructure challenges such energy, food, waste management and the built environment. 

 Currently Zac is conducting environmental life cycle assessment work for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (Golden, CO) and continuing PhD studies at the University of Colorado Denver.  For his PhD dissertation Zac will be evaluating the performance of residential construction methods and materials from an economic, environmental and human wellbeing perspective.  In May 2014 Zac will be temporarily moving to Ashland, Oregon to learn how to build timber frame, light clay-straw houses with his bare hands (and collect data). 

 Zac holds a B.S. in agricultural & leadership development from Texas A&M University, a graduate certificate in international affairs from the George H.W. Bush School of Government and Public Affairs and a M.Eng. in Civil/Environmental Engineering from the University of Colorado Denver.  Zac’s long-term goals are to be a faithful steward of the resources with which he has been entrusted, to continue developing his technical and creative skills and to continue doing business with like-minded people.
