.NET DeveloperYou can count on us to get the job done. As the Army ad says "We get more done before 9am than most people do all day."

In his spare time Lance works on his lifelong art project, building an off-the-grid medieval stone castle in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Keene Castle originally started off as just a dream home to live in. But along the way it became much more than that. It became a source of inspiration to others, not just for achieving one's goals in life but also to teach the world about alternative energy and alternative building. See: http://www.KeeneCastle.com
