I was born in California, grew up in Hawaii and have spent most of my adult life in Alaska. I love to travel, have visited every state except Alabama and Mississippi, tent camped across Canada, worked in Argentina, and visited much of Europe and briefly visited Asia and Africa.
I have been trained as an civil engineer, and worked in operations at the utility division of independent oil company. I have some utility executive experience, and have knowledge of the oil and gas business. My approach to problem solving is analytical.
I am sometimes liberal, sometimes conservative and always skeptical. After viewing Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth, I became concerned about global warming science as demonstrated by the film. I wondered how a self promoting pseudo-scientific political commercial had become so popular.
Al Gore’s film turned me into a climate skeptic.
