Shimer and My Career

Shimer empowered me. I am now retired, but am active in managing investments and doing research on energy storage at the utility level. Prior to retirement, I managed a company, Reliability Analysis Associates Inc. I also worked at Lucent Technologies in Argonne National Laboratory at University of Illinois, Chicago. And at the High Altitude Observatory in Boulder, Colorado. I am married, live in Chicago, and have two children.
