You most enjoy writing about: green energy, handmade stuff, energy efficient appliances, LED lights.
Your personal home style is: DIY minimal with lots of wood.
Your green home must-have is: a coffee syphon and a Dyson vacuum.

What's on your nightstand? cell phone (alarm clock), alarm clock (to quickly check the time), asthma inhaler, lamp, book.
Where you go for inspiration/info/help: Inhabitat, Etsy, just plain research when subjects come to mind.
DIY or buy? Sometimes DIY and sometimes buy.
Favorite CFL or LED lightbulb brand? GE does some good LED bulbs. For CFL, I use Philips.
