    Hello everyone,

    My name is Aaron, 27, currently residing in Jacksonville, FL. I work for a Medicare contractor and my company is about to cut my pay by 20% come January 1st due to the "Affordable" Care Act and already started cutting my hours. Obviously this is not going to work out if I am going to be self-sufficient and able to have a family someday.

    I have been dabbling with ideas for starting my own business over the last year. I want to make artistic and functional furnishings that incorporate LED lighting and possibly solar power for the maximum form, function, and sustainability without the need to depend on the grid.

    I am a big-time electronics tinkerer and fix laptops, cell phones, tablets, and appliances for fun. I hope to someday soon be able to bring these skills to the table with an off-grid community to support modern and abundant living standards to the residents as well as promote technology as a source of income.

    If you've got a forward-thinking and innovative community and need creativity and tenacity on board, contact me and let's work something out!

    It's nice to be here and I hope I can learn a lot and share ideas with all of you. :)

    If you need Beta testers, probably many here could be convinced to provide SH costs plus a nominal, non-exploitive fee for your product as it is developed, to try it out and give feedback. jus sayin
