Here we go!!

Greetings from Waterworld –

After many conversations with my in-house marketing gurus, I’ve been convinced to start a blog. Here she blows. So, in this blog, I’ll occasionally pontificate on various issues that are: 1) about water, 2) timely and 3) potentially interesting. My opinions.

Generally speaking, I think most people understand very little about water, and more specifically, the water they drink. As water issues have recently become more topical, it’s kinda disappointing to me how those issues get reported upon in the press. Like just about everything else we read or watch, there are a lot of questionable conclusions. Everyone has their own angle – or at least an angle that they think is newsworthy – facts be damned.

Well, my job is to separate the wheat from the chaff, and believe me, there’s a whole lotta chaff.

My credentials? Got a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Duke – on the way I did time in both the pre-med and biomedical engineering programs. Worked on offshore oil rigs for Schlumberger for a couple years. Harvard Business School. CFO for a small oil exploration company. A little investment banking. A lot of energy consulting work and investment banking work for independent power producers and cogeneration companies. Lots of equipment specification work.

I love water. Started DrinkMore Water in 1993 with one retail water store. Designed and installed virtually every piece of purification and bottling equipment in our facility. DrinkMore Water now manufactures and distributes water throughout the Washington/Baltimore greater metro areas. We have about 10,000 customers – homes and businesses alike. Our product is purified water. I think it is the best water on the market today – bar none – and believe me, I’ll be telling you why I think that.

Feel free to post your comments.
