"An enormous and growing problem."

"Our democracy is under siege from an enemy so small it could be hiding anywhere."

Stephen Colbert

That's the Plummer. It's my favorite bicycle in my collection. It's also the least expensive.

Greetings and welcome! I am just your typical tree-hugging, EV-lovin' bicycle-nut. I don't do much editing on Wikipedia these days, but I may start up again. Thanks for stopping by.

About Me

I am forty-something.

I live in Southern California

I am currently driving to work, but I want to figure out a way to get to work in a more environmentally-friendly manner.

I wrote a science fiction novel, which was fun to do, but I have not really tried to get it published because that seems too much like work.

I recently tried to get a bicycle import business going, but I gave up on it because I wanted to spend more time with my kids.

I write for EVWorld when I have time, but see my previous note about spending time with my kids.

I would love to hear from any of you who feel as though you have something worthwhile to say to me.

Professional Life

I am an engineer. I have spent most of my career developing electric vehicles and related equipment, but I recently got a more stable job developing aircraft fire suppression equipment.

Prior to receiving my engineering degree, I worked primarily in the bicycle industry selling, building and distributing bicycles and associated products. I worked for Moots Cycles, Fuji Bicycles and several bicycle shops. I also built some frames on my own.

That's a photo I took of the eBox by AC Propulsion. It's a wonderful, practical electric vehicle made by some really great people.
