Sitting on the sidelines in SC watching the world go by. 
For a third year SC failed to create an economic development package to help unemployed workers move into the solar arena and support a growing new industry. In the same month that Germany hits 20GW o...

Story
Tagline
Moving to a sustainable energy future via the sun.
Introduction
I am a Solar fanatic.  I want to see the wide scale adoption of direct harvesting of the Sun for one reason; No one, and I mean no one has offered another viable long term solution to our energy needs.

I currently work for SolbrightRE As Director of Project Management. Solbright is a turnkey solutions provider for Photovoltiac and solar thermal systems for commercial and military. I work hard to bring every project in on-time and on budget. Providing superior service after the sale is my professional mandate and I believe every project is relationship based.
I became interested in solar power in 1975 when the US Apollo and Russian Soyuz linked in space. At the time, I was an eight-year-old avid science fiction reader living in England. 
 
I relocated to Manhattan in 1986 to work as a video and sound technician in the educational film industry. In 1990, I became the Earth Day Editor for the largest Earth Day event of the time. A 1996 graduate of the University of Georgia, I began my post collegiate career as a systems engineer with a top global IT services provider. I later earned my SC residential builder license and as a hobby specialized in historic home restoration/renovation.
 
In 2006, I completed training with AET Solar in Jacksonville, Florida. I joined Argand Energy a start-up as a solar thermal installer and soon became Vice President of Business Development for South Carolina. 
 After serving my first term on the South Carolina Solar Council I realized no-one was actively pursuing policy that would bring the solar industry to SC. I created the Solar Business Alliance to advocate for smart policy in SC.  North Carolina has over $300 million in economic activity from Solar since 2006, thats a 60 fold increase over SC. 

After leaving Argand, I worked for two years at Sunstore Solar a regional developer of PV and thermal.  In 2011 I started work for Ontility the fastest growing distributor of solar equipment and training.  I made hundreds of connection across the country and world during this time and will continue to foster relationships within the industry.  
There  is only one sustainable energy source, the sun and the potential for harvesting photovoltaic energy is unlimited.  I continue to advance my understanding of solar power by periodically taking classes.
I am North American Board of certified Energy practioners (NABCEP) certified in intro to photovoltaics and I frequently lecture on PV design and installation.
