Introduction
I'm a father, a blogger, a social media fool and a green crunchy treehugger who embraces new media and social networking to help spread the word about positive social change. I also build WordPress sites and teach small businesses how to use blogging and social media.

I dig solar and wind energy, green tech and cleantech, organic farming, permaculture, mushrooms, bicycles, and homesteading topics.
