In 2007, he became a PMI Project Management Professional (PMP) and afterwards, taught mostly online. He is now retired to continue writing. His 1996 PhD dissertation addressed the electric vehicle industry of that day, a content analysis of 2,000 media items of biases for and against battery technologies as theory would predict.
