Hobbies...too many and not enough time, but RE's been in my blood since '68 when I used solar to power my pirate AM radio station (just kidding FCC!) I'm a ham radio operator (KC2FSW)and am into anything that promotes self sufficiency and sustainable living.

Business Comments:

I'm currently a senior technical support specialist for Morningstar Corporation and represent them on the Wrenches List.

Over the past 25+ years, in addition to operating my company Four Winds, I have been a NABCEP Certified Small Wind and PV installer, an Eligible Installer for the NY PV and wind incentive programs and co-chair of the NABCEP small wind technical review and exam committees.

I'm a past board member of the Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC) and the Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA).
There's even more, but the message here is that I volunteered for WAY too much stuff!

Since starting work full time at Morningstar I wound my business down and am now just supporting existing systems.

We generate most of our own power at Four Winds for both home and business using a 3400 watt solar array and a Whisper H1500 wind turbine.
