The Fusion SE Energi is an accurate representation of me because it is a low emission energy efficient vehicle that blends practicality, efficiency and innovation. Born in the city but raised by hippies I’ve always been conscious of my impact on the environment and the people around me. At home, we avoid unnecessary waste, recycle, compost, grow as much as we can to eat, raise our kids in cloth diapers and make useful items before buying them from the store. At work, I’m focused on simple and efficient process while constantly innovating new solutions to the ever changing challenges we face as a company focused on technology.
