Story
Tagline
China Renewable Energy Analyst and Consultant
Introduction
Former US government China-Central Asia policy analyst, intelligence officer, Taiwan radio personality. Habs and Arsenal Fan.  Working to develop China-US clean energy business ties, mostly solar but hoping to expand to wind.  Live in Brooklyn but originally from Spokane, WA.  If I could choose any person to join twitter, it would be Carey Price.  Big Tom Waits, Velvet Underground, Meat Puppets, Minutemen fan.  If I could meet anyone, it would be Werner Herzog
Bragging rights
Received a direct commission into the Army and went to intelligence officer basic course in Ft Hauchuca, Arizona with absolutely no military training. Kind of comical since everyone else had been through ROTC, officer candidate training. I am also a big Kyrgyz culture, language fan. Became interesting in Uyghurs while living in China. Studied Kyrgyz during my U of W master's program. DoD paid for one-on-one Kyrgyz tutoring for my whole intelligence career.
