Tom McGrath, Co-founder
Renewable energy has been in Tom’s sights since he was an undergrad at Cornell University. While pursuing his Anthropology degree, Tom was active in ENSOL, a solar energy collective. Graduate-level coursework in ethnographic film and in-depth film production classes propelled Tom into filmmaking. He worked behind the camera on major feature films, TV shows, music videos, commercials and documentaries, using cutting-edge cinematography, lighting design, and post production technologies. Tom founded a fast-paced production services company, capped with a successful career as a Director of Photography (DP), primarily in TV commercial projects around the world for top brands.
As departmental manager, Tom was responsible for the planning and execution of complex schedules and multi-million dollar budgets in the creation of advertising content, in 35 countries. In one moment suspended between unpacking from filming a documentary in the tar sands region of Canada and heading off to shoot an exciting high-gloss commercial in the desert for an auto manufacturer, Tom collided with his own personal truth about the fossil fuel economy.
Tom brings a creative entrepreneurial drive to renewable energy, focusing on Sustainability, Clean Technologies and Resource Recovery Systems. Tom is a Project Management Professional (PMP), has completed sustainable business study through Cornell's graduate program, and is certified as a Sustainable Resource Management Professional.
Tom is Co-founder and CEO of ReSource BioEnergy Inc., a sustainable enterprise. Tom continues to pull together a dynamic team to design and deploy highly efficient BioEnergy solutions optimized for a sustainable future.
