Rod is an experienced business technology consultant and microgrid solution provider with a background in aligning energy and technology initiatives with core business objectives. He is passionate about slowing down the impacts of climate change and believes the deployment of microgrids is a part of the solution.
He and Ted discuss his background, growing up in Shreveport, Louisiana, ranking nationally in High School as a fencer, joining the Navy as an electronics technician, and attending Southern Illinois University studying workforce development before delving into the IT world at Next Solutions, Inc.
