Dr. Enzo (also known as "Enzo") is an award-winning researcher and consultant in Sustainable Business Development, Ecological Economics, and Permaculture Design. He works on projects in Nashville, TN, Asheville, NC, and internationally. Enzo is also a registered Teacher and Consultant with the Permaculture Research Institutes in Australia and USA. He holds a Ph.D. in Management (specialization in Ecological Economics), and an M.B.A. in Sustainable Business from Tennessee State University.

Enzo began his career as an Environmental Remediation Project Manager, responding to oil spills, train wrecks, chemical disasters, factory explosions, and natural disasters. He also worked in government as an Emergency Management Officer, where he was intimately involved in the responses to Hurricanes Ivan and Katrina, among other state/federal emergencies.

Enzo has extensive experience in management and sustainability consulting for corporations, non-profits, universities, state and local governments, ecovillages, organic farms, and individual homesteads. Enzo received his Permaculture Design Certificate from the Mollison Permaculture Research Institute (This was the original Permaculture Research Institute in Australia founded by Bill Mollison, which pre-dates the current PRI Australia run by Geoff Lawton). He has received advanced training in organic food production, natural building, agroforestry, food forest design, and ecovillage design. Enzo is passionate about alternative local economic systems, natural building, appropriate technology, forest farming, and helping students and clients start their own businesses.
