I have been an energy consultant for over 35 years working for both the public and private sectors. My current focus is on the economic impact of new Climate Change legislative initiatives. Twenty years ago I provided private investment research service to mutual fund, insurance and private equity investors in the electric power industry. For sixteen years, I was the financial and economic advisor to the RUS in its efforts to restructure an extensive portfolio of troubled and bankrupt power generation companies. I am a graduate of Virginia Tech (MBA/Management Science) and Wittenberg U. (Economics and Business Admin).
