The team consists of these key NEV people:
Sam Parris, a commercial analyst and accountant, is helping run the financial model and spreadsheets and Jenni Mattila from Mattila Lawyers is our legal advisor.
The Sydney Coastal Ecovillage project was founded by Dave and Lyndall Parris who drew together professionals with the necessary skills and determination to deliver this adventurous project.
I hold the vision behind this project, which has been brewing since 1997. During this time I was employed as an accountant, working with and training small to intermediate sized businesses in Sydney and Cooma, NSW. My professional qualifications include BA Grad.Dip.Accounting CPA. I enjoy yoga, skiing, travelling, watching movies, learning new things, meeting new people and have run various events and clubs. I have a high level of enthusiasm and love for the project. Coupled with strong training and facilitation skills, I am well placed to co-ordinate the development process.
Dave's relevant experience to the project includes development of energy infrastructure, business development, project management, feasibility analysis, sub-division, federal, state and local government relations, managing a variety of organisational departments and committees and specialising in renewable energy. He holds a B.Science, B.Engineering (Hons) and a Dip.Corp.Management. Dave enjoys bushwalking, skiing, bike riding, kayaking, rural property and building.
Come and meet us at an event or give me a call anytime.
Look forward to seeing you sometime,
