I currently have my own independent consulting firm B. Tubbs & Associates Consulting Inc. which allows me to do contract work for large industrial producers and to work as a sub-contractor or partner with other consulting firms.

Prior to 2016, I worked as a management consultant for various consulting firms including Celerant Consulting (operational performance improvement), ICF International (Climate and Energy) and Hatch (Engineering).
