Sam Pardo joined GreenHomeNYC in February of 2008 during a brief sabbatical from “gainful employment”. He took right away to the House Calls program and has spent a year boot-strapping it and being 50% of the first presentation team. Sam is an enthusiastic supporter of the peer-to-peer learning model of GreenHomeNYC, and his happy to be growing his network of sustainable friends and colleagues through his involvement. In his spare time he enjoys surfing, cooking, traveling, gardening, and badgering others about the merits of congestion pricing and other progressive sustainably-minded initiatives. He counts tropical fruit and quasi-frequent surf trips to Central America as his environmental vices.
