for the way ahead
Truth be told, this website is more museum than marketing! Since 2008, I have been working full-time for PowerDash. But I've wanted to keep this web presence alive as a small tribute to the wonderful experiences I've had supporting sustainability projects in my prior work as a contract web developer. In particular, I am very grateful for the opportunity to have worked with the devoted international team at UNEP/GRID-Arendal in Arendal, Norway. At this time, more than ever, we need to continue working together on behalf of the planet and all the people who call it home.
