About: Keith Tanner
Although Keith is technically new to the professional world of sustainability, this has long been one of his passions. He currently works as the Director of Educational Development for the consulting group Environmental Building Strategies. This followed a stint last summer with Arup, where he worked as a sustainability intern with the planning department. He is currently applying to graduate schools, focusing on programs in urban planning and environmental management.
Keith is a LEED Green Associate and plans to take the LEED AP exam in the coming months. He has a B.A. in English from Northwestern University and spent most of his years after graduation working in the field of education. Since leaving Chicago he has lived in Prague, Boston, Thailand, France, Los Angeles and now San Francisco. A native of Southern California, Keith must grudgingly admit that Northern California feels more in line with his general worldview.
Within sustainability, Keith’s interests include urban design, energy efficiency, transit systems, slow food, water management, greenhouse gas reduction, climate change policy, and vertical farming. Outside of this, Keith enjoys literature, film, music, good food and drinks. An ideal weekend involves taking his dog Roz on a long walk somewhere in the Bay Area, exploring a new route on a bike ride, cooking a large feast with produce from a farmer’s market, drinking some craft beers at a local bar with friends, with some reading tossed in there as well.
