I love data analysis, I love writing, and I really love writing about data analysis. Every position I've ever held has been as a combination analyst/author. In addition to honing core talents I've learned a lot about research product development and marketing, media outreach and relationship management, editorial boards and calendars, and public speaking.

Corporate Messaging

Energy and utilities companies have used my work in sustainability/CSR reports, investor relations materials, regulatory filings, website and marketing copy, and internal reports. Work includes CSR/ESG assessment and peer benchmarking, sustainability messaging and stakeholder engagement, and ESG-related research, analyses, and data visualizations.

Book Contributions

Authoring a book is definitely on my bucket list but until I'll have to be content with having made research and writing contributions to those of others. All pertain to energy/utilities finance — investing and securities analysis, mergers and acquisitions, and the perils of creative accounting and off-balance sheet financing (that would be the Enron book).

The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron
Americas Electric Utilities: Past Present and Future
U.S. Utility Mergers and the Restructuring of the New Global Power Industry
Turning Numbers Into Knowledge: Mastering the Art of Problem Solving
The Science of Algorithmic Trading and Portfolio Management

Media Coverage/Other

My writing and research is featured in sustainability and ESG investing media, mainstream financial and general press, and energy industry journals. Coverage includes authorship, interviews, TV appearances, and citations. I also speak at conferences and contribute to academia (e.g., Kellogg School of Management's MBA-level "Impact Investing" course).
