Energy direction, editorial depth and reliability in commodity price indexes 


Delivering leadership in energy editorial products


North America has led the world in the deregulation of natural gas markets, and was in the forefront of electric power market development. American refiners played a significant role in the development of clean motor fuels. I have had a front row seat to these events as a journalist.


This site contains some of the newsletters I have created and stories I have written. You'll also find examples of index data and special publications like books and convention newspapers. 


I have worked in many sectors along with energy industry executives who wanted to see responsible service journalism. I want to help you succeed in the energy business.
