Steve’s Greenworks Story

Steve’s career spans well over 15 years of government relations, public affairs and environmental advocacy experience. He was the 2014 Democratic Nominee for Texas Railroad Commissioner (state’s oil/gas regulator), which made him the youngest African American to win a statewide primary in Texas and he is presently a candidate for Congressional District 22.  In his professional life, he specializes in providing solar and energy efficiency strategies to public, commercial, non-profit and multifamily housing clients.

He began his career at The White House as an intern in the Office of Legislative Affairs. He assisted that division in their efforts to advance President Clinton’s congressional priorities. After moving back to Houston in 1998, he joined the staff of U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and later became the budget analyst for then-House Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Sylvester Turner (now Mayor of Houston). In 2014, Steve launched Capitol Assets, A Full Service Public Affairs and Sustainable Energy Development firm, which advocates for expanding access to renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions. He also serves on President Barack Obama’s National Solar Partnership, the Solar Energy Industries Association’s Finance Initiative committee and is a Texas PACE developer.
