My name is Ryan. I chose the handle of energyflower since it covers my two main passions in life: energy efficiency and gardening. And, often enough, the two go hand-in-hand.
I am the proud owner, with my wife and son, of an early 1800s farm that has gone through many energy efficient upgrades (done mostly by myself). My background is in environmental science and I have worked as an Energy Efficiency Analyst conducting audits for homeowners and helping them to understand and undertake efficient improvements to their homes. I have also worked as an ecologist in river bank restoration, and am an avid gardener.
