This user was certified a Wiki Apprentice Level 1 by Wikirandy .

A former professor of environmental sciences, renewable energy and sustainability, I now have a consulting firm which provides services in these areas, internationally. Primary areas include biomass energy, alternative crops and cropping practices, sustainable agriculture and power production/storage.

I also edit the international academic journal,On the Horizon which is a foresight journal with a focus on education futures in general and post secondary education in particular. I work with governments, policy analysts, educational institutions and the private sector focusing on all areas of education from finance/economics, program development and instructional design. These consultancies are international, also. They include competency based education, service learning, project and adventure learning as well as alternative models for education.

These two interests intersect where project based learning uses the environment and competency-based learning become a focus.
