Climate Control Projects was founded in 2020 with a mission of working within popular culture to create awareness, accountability and action around the issue of climate change. We produce content and events that engage mainstream audiences and connect them on a personal level to the climate crisis, leading them to immediately accessible and actionable solutions.

CCP is headquartered in a soon-to-be underwater part of NYC that was stolen from the Lenape people in 1624.

What inspires you? For years, I've wanted to use the skills I've collected throughout my career in music for good. My involvement with Climate Control Projects has been a challenging, but clear bridge to that space, creating and learning daily about climate, and working towards a healthier planet. I'm routinely inspired by the work itself, by the value my partners bring to it, and by the incredible energy and minds in the movement.

First job: Gas pump jockey.

What inspires you? I am inspired by transformation. Change is always possible. We need to stop looking at the climate crisis as external, something that's happening to us. It's happening because of us. It was greed and avarice—not the natural cycles of the planet—that has altered our climate, and it's collaboration and selflessness that will help us course correct. Small changes in our daily lives won’t entirely solve the problem, but they are inroads to the systemic changes we desperately need to fight climate change.

First job: Breakfast joint dish washer.
