My journey to solar has been non linear. I spent a year in college before realizing I wanted to fulfill my dream of becoming a Marine, which I did. Unfortunately, it was during Don't Ask, Don't Tell, and my enlistment was cut short. I returned to college, ultimately completing a master's in physics. I spent a few years working for NASA as an instructor, teaching flight controllers and astronauts how to work the electrical and thermal systems on the space station. Then I moved on to the oil and gas industry, which wasn't exactly ideal for an environmentalist but I learned a lot. When I was laid off, I knew I didn't want to remain in oil and gas and contacted an old friend who had a solar company. Brandon Galusha and I formed the LLC in 2017, though I handle the day-to-day operations.
My wife and I have been together since 1999 and had our daughter in 2015. I’ve also published two lesbian romance novels so far.
