BE+ Summer Shindig headliner Rosie Osser will perform an original standup comedy act with the goal to amuse and inspire the green building community. Later, audience members are warmly encouraged to take the mic to share their favorite comic stories from the field.

Roselin Osser, PE, BEMP, LEED AP BD+C is a senior project engineer with AKF’s Energy + Performance group. With 16 years of experience in building performance consulting, she has managed diverse sustainability projects including complex science laboratories, hospitals, unusual archival spaces, multifamily buildings, and k-12 schools. In addition to expertise in energy modeling, energy policies, utility incentives, and the LEED rating system, she brings a unique enthusiasm for inspiring project teams to optimize and decarbonize the built environment.

Osser has combined strong motivation to reduce human impact on the environment with a lifelong passion for the performing arts. Known for dynamic and humorous presentations on green building topics, she enjoys an unusual parallel career as a classical singer, specializing in comic opera roles. This year she made her Boston Lyric Opera debut as Hansel in a touring children’s production of Hansel and Gretel, introducing opera storytelling to hundreds of Boston area students from kindergarten through 10th grade. The BE+ Summer Shindig will be her standup comedy debut.
