Growing up in the sixties, Doug always had a fascination with solar energy. ...Point something at the sun and you get electricity? How cool is that?
In college he studied Economics (Bachelors) and Computer Science (Masters) at Boston University. Early jobs in the software and marketing research industries (IRI) saw him in both technical and sales roles. He later turned to entrepenurial pursuits in online video and consumer goods (online marketing) - before starting DASolar in 2008. Creating DASolar has been an opportunity for Doug to combine his education and business experience with his boyhood interest in solar energy and a love for the outdoors.
In his free time Doug takes full advantage of Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountains to ski and hike - with occasional knee crushing forays to Yosemite and beyond.
