Born and raised in Baltimore, Md. Our family worshiped at an Episcopal church, as did my grand parents. I went to confirmation class there, was confirmed as a teenager, and taught church school classes. I was an acolyte. At other churches I have been an assistant minister and Vestry member, as well as at Good Shepherd. Professionally I have both an engineering degree and a business degree. These skills have been used to lead businesses that improve the environment. In the past decade our team has developed a utility-sized wind turbine generator that will bring low cost electricity to the 2/3rds of America which has moderate winds. My wife Judi and I have three grown sons and four teenage grand- daughters.
