Raised on the Monterey Peninsula (California), I have been self-employed most of my working life. I got my general contractor's license in 1982. Hot water has been an interest in its many forms so I have been a member of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers, and The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers. In 1992, I completed the Water Heater Workbook. I have written articles on water heating and energy for various trade journals and have taught about these topics. More recently I helped create DVD's on these and related topics. I finished building an off-grid home in 2006 which was designed to be very efficient, comfortable and inexpensive. With over 50 years of dealing with man-made things and their makers, I have come to believe that self-sufficiency is an important goal to work towards. I'm glad to share what I've learned. There are many ways to be useful to life here, human and otherwise, so now I'm learning about vibrant health and how to help others achieve it.
