Simon Marlow is an inventor and author. He enjoys the new and unusual but he has a real passion for growing and living as 'green' a life as he can. Simon was born in the cool, wet climes of Scotland where he spent most of his youth going to school, playing rugby but best of all learning to play golf as it was once played many years ago, as fun, with laughter and some daring.
He spent many years in college gaining a BS in engineering and finalizing with a PhD in Bio-Medical Engineering specializing in the field of open heart surgery.
Like everyone else the honeymoon of college life came to an end, as thoughts of full time employment loomed. Simon spent the next 20 years working in a variety of Pharmaceutical companies (SB, GSK, Sanofi) as an IT executive travelling the world and experiencing many of the world's great cultures.
After retiring early and having avidly followed the explosive growth of the internet, he decided to put his knowledge to use, specifically in the area of green living. To that end he now spends most of his waking hours seeking information to combine in order to create knowledge for the betterment of future generations.
Recently he converted his home and business to a net-zero energy environment by combining solar and geothermal with LED lighting. He has now managed to live 'off the grid' in his 5000 sq ft home. He has helped numerous families and businesses convert their heating and cooling to geothermal and solar using state of the art renewable energy systems. If you ever decide to go with renewable energy make sure to give him a call or read his book.
Simon lives quietly in his rural home nestled in Bucks county Pennsylvania. He grows most of his own food and is rapidly becoming a vegetarian. If you ever visit New Hope keep an eye out for him as he drives a 'chili' red mini cooper S!
