Profile Information

How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
Lo Cost Energy + Energy Commons: Energy continues to be one of the largest costs and hurdles in a Transition Community. Net-Zero and Net-metering are all part of the multi-national corporate mindset. Microgrid communities and appropriate technology modeled on permaculture principles is where we need to go = and that's where I am working and spending my own energies on.

I would like to help out anyone within an intentional community looking to create a de-centralized energy system.
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I am living it... I have designed and built a stand-alone totally closed loop, beyond net-zero, and no-op cost home. I transitioned about 10 years ago .

I would now like to help a community accomplish the same.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
Renewable energy engineer and teacher. Electrical engineering degree, solar/wind/geothermal/rainwater, etc. expert, builder, designer. I teach at CSU and in Europe on green building and sustainable business. Extensive project and quality management skills. Cradle-to-Cradle activist.
Your Personal Website (if you have one)
What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
Like-minded spirits. Permaculuture. Living more upstream.

my blog at

Hi: I'd like to share my blog which is a compilation of lessons learning trying to walk the talk of a super low carbon footprint and totally 'closing - the -loop'. The blog details some of the teaching lessons I relay to my students, and the adventures of building my own no-impact home.
