He is currently (2010–2008) working on a MESAS LLC contract in West Virginia, carrying out a socio-economic and environmental impacts survey of tourism businesses along the Shavers Fork native-trout stream near Elkins, WV that will be negatively affected by a proposed limestone quarry.
Since February 2008, he has been developing the storm water management capabilities of Harmony Ponds. Inc.
In 2007, he was a consultant for the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) to screen and rank off-grid hydropower projects for rural electrification and poverty alleviation. He made site visits to the existing hydropower projects of Kurra (8 MW) and Ankwil I (1 MW), the construction phase of Mbowo (30 kW), and the proposed Oyan (9 MW) and Ikpoba (3 MW).
In 2005, on behalf of International Resources Group (IRG), he was a consultant for USAID/MIRA in Honduras on developing micro-hydroelectric projects within protected areas. He made site visits to the existing hydropower projects of Babilonia (4.2 MW), Santa María (1 MW), Yojoa (630 kW), Río Blanco (4.2), and the proposed projects of daily pondage (40 MW) and storage (100 MW) in the Río Cangrejal.

Deputy Chief of Party, International Resources Group, Nepal . November 1998–2004 . First as Resident Environmental Advisor, and then as DCOP, he was responsible for overall planning, organizing, and implementing all aspects of IR 4.2 “Increased Environmental and Social Soundness in Hydropower Investment” of USAID’s Private Sector Hydropower Development Project (PSHDP). His achievements include implementing successful interagency workshops for improving and streamlining the EIA/SIA process; producing 10 technical manuals (five of which have been published so far) to facilitate government agencies, developers, and stakeholders in understanding and complying with the EIA/SIA process; establishing a close relationship between IRG, the Department of Electricity Development (DOED) and the School for Environmental Management and Sustainable Development (SchEMS) that furthered PSHDP objectives; participating in the cross-cutting training at SchEMS of more than 250 government, NGO, and private professionals who work with EIA/SIA; and, establishing synergies between USAID and NORAD, and the Ministries of Water Resources (MOWR) and Population and Environment (MOPE).

Working with IRG advisors and local participants, Dr. Gorzula has greatly enhanced local capacity for environmental assessments. His cultural sensitivity and friendly personality motivates people to work together. He co-authored a study of the impact of the insurgency in Nepal on the environment.
