Meet the Author

Hello, I am glad you dropped by to read my Bio; I hope you find it interesting.
I was born in the cool, wet climes of Scotland where I spent most of my youth going to school, playing rugby but best of all learning to play golf as it was once played many years ago with fun, laughter and daring. However, my ambition was to learn engineering and apply it to the human body. So after many years of studying I graduated with a BS in Chemical Engineering then a PhD in BioMedical-Engineering. I spent many interesting months in the open heart surgery operating rooms designing systems to control the flow of blood to artificial lungs which then became the basis for my thesis.
Like everyone else the honeymoon of college life came to an end as thoughts of full time employment loomed. I spent the next 25 years working in Pharmaceutical companies as an IT executive travelling the world and experiencing many of the world's great cultures. After retiring early and following the explosive growth of the internet I decided that it was now time to put my worldly knowledge to use, specifically in the area of green living.
Over the years I have become more sensitive to changes in the planet's climate specifically around energy and water. With four growing kids I felt that I should try and help return balance to the world for my kids’ sake whilst maintaining a comfortable enjoyable lifestyle. I believe if we can show changes can be made without huge sacrifice then minds will open to future possibilities of living more harmoniously with nature. To that end I now spend most of my waking hours seeking information to combine to great knowledge for the betterment of mankind.
All articles that my company produces are original content; I'd rather spend time producing useful information than regurgitating other work just to satisfy the search engines perceived view of importance. So please, if you find what I produce useful let me know or vice-versa
Thanks again for stopping by, I do hope you find my meager endeavors of value.
