Electric Vehicle information for Atlanta and Georgia

media appearances

I have made several minor appearances in the media over the years. Mostly these are a result of having the first Chevy Volt in the region, and an EV early adopter in general. I’m also an activist for charging infrastructure in metro Atlanta, and so I end up being interviewed in various situations involving charging stations, such as new openings.

This isn’t my day job, so I’m just keeping track here of where I’ve popped up.
