So how did I get this way?

It all started when graduating from college I took a job in the electric power industry and loved it! (Yeah, in addition to being an energy heretic, I’m also an energy geek.) In fact, I enjoyed the field so much that I went back to school for a masters degree in Energy Management and Environmental Policy. During the course of my career, I’ve worked on:

  • Power plant design.
  • Integrated resource planning.
  • Plant operational studies.
  • Public sector strategic planning and budgeting.
  • Database application development.
  • Power price forecasting.
  • Merchant plant development.
  • Generation asset transactions.
  • Energy purchases and sales (wholesale and retail).
  • Transmission planning.
  • Facility condition assessments and valuations (transmission and generation).
  • Energy supply security studies.
  • Government regulatory process.
  • Electric reliability standards.
  • Compliance audits and investigations.

That’s 22 years of professional experience. For more specifics, you can check out my LinkedIn profile.

At the moment, I’m building a freelance energy consulting practice. If you could benefit from consulting a heretic, please contact me directly.
