He’s led the charge on over 220 LEED projects, certifying an astonishing 70 million square feet of LEED-certified space. His expertise extends across various facets of sustainability, earning him LEED Accredited Professional status in Building Design + Construction (BD+C) and Operations + Maintenance (O+M).

He embarked on his LEED consulting career in 2008 and has been an integral part of SIG for over a decade. His role has seen him successfully run high-quality LEED projects including major stadiums like U.S. Bank Stadium and convention centers like Georgia World Congress Center, while also providing LEED exam prep training, mentor colleagues, and lead SIG’s sales team.

“I’ve always been passionate about the environment and the outdoors,” said Asa, “My career path and passion for improving the built environment materialized in 2008 when I witnessed firsthand how human activity, especially urbanization, affected natural ecosystems. It was at that very moment that my journey began. I’ve spent nearly 15 years championing green building design, construction, and operations, with LEED as the foundation.
