Ryan McEvoy has been merging his expertise in real estate development and
sustainable energy since 2001. Ryan became a LEED AP in 2002 and soon began
his career as a Project Manager and Sustainability Coordinator at Yorkshire
Development. During this time, he assisted his firm with the development of
Pasadena’s Tricom Building – the world’s first LEED speculative commercial
building. Ryan took it upon himself to communicate with the City of
Pasadena Planning Department, Water and Power, and City Council, to ensure
their interest and adoption of LEED in future city planning. This became
the basis of Pasadena’s acclaimed green building program. In 2005, Ryan
established Gaia Development.

Ryan continues to reach back to the community through Collective Solutions
and by teaching a sustainability course at Cal State Dominguez Hills and
speaking at sustainability-minded conferences around the country.
