Jacob's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us source material for accessible solar generators.

Jacob's story

I was trained as an Engineer at RIT where I excelled and received the highest honors. I have performed design and construction services for the large and small consulting firms in our region, built multi­-million dollar digesters, and constructed rain barrels. The focus of my life has always been studying, designing, and constructing what I call Resilient Infrastructure, dedicated to developing projects that can help guide us to a permanent balance with the earth's systems. In other words, I am a huge eco-­geek, and have built a business that is capable of sustaining economic viability for a team of designers, technicians, organizers, marketers, and creatives as we work together to make and move planet­-friendly product. I am not only an engineer or builder, but a people person. I seek to meet people where they are and discover how we can bring each other mutual benefit, and have a talent for seeing the value that people can bring to a well balanced team. This has led me to In the City Off the Grid (ICOG) and thus to you.
