Hi! I’m Calvin Cornish. I’m a Senior Energy Advisor here with Nania Energy. I’ve been in the industry since 2003 and I just celebrated my 10 year anniversary with Nania Energy recently.
I’ve been in energy for a long time. I work with community living and real estate, so property managers, apartments, commercial property managers. I really enjoy working with folks and learning about energy efficiency and learning in general. Outside of work, I like taking on new projects outside and around the house — woodworking, building, I just like to learn how things work and make things.
I spend a lot of time with kids. I have three kids, and my wife is currently teaching preschool out of our house a couple of days a week with six preschool kids including youngest. So there’s always kids around, and I really enjoy that.
I like the outdoors. I don’t think anyone would describe me as an “outdoors-y” person, like I’m not camping and things. But I do enjoy any excuse to be outside, whether it’s yard work or building.
And I would suggest if you’re in a new neighborhood and you’re looking for ways to meet your neighbors, just start huge yard projects. Build whatever you can outside, because I put up a pool recently and a deck, and I think I met half the people in my entire neighborhood as they all nosily stopped by and said “Hey, whatcha got goin’ on back there?” So just hanging out, meeting neighbors, that’s what I really enjoy doing in my free time — building things outside, meeting people, and spending time with friends.
So while I’ve really enjoyed the extra time at home and time spent with my family, one major takeaway that I’ve had from the COVID experience that I’ve found is just how much I appreciate talking with clients. Some of my best friends are clients and folks in the industry. I really enjoy getting to know them, helping them solve problems, and just talking through things.
I’d love to help you out if you want to talk about energy efficiency or just talk about woodworking tips and building pools. I’d love to hear from you. My contact information is below, so feel free to reach out and I look forward to talking with you soon.
