Steve Heins
Steve HeinsThe Word Merchant
In a highly divided and partisan world, it is my intent to provide an even handed view of the rapidly converging worlds of energy, technology and broadband.

Steve is a freelance writer vastly educated on the topics of energy, environment and communication technology. He stays up to date on all current events and is a huge asset in discussions related to these topics, both in conference and in publications. While he maintains neutral ground in hotly debated topics like global warming, Heins believes that there is a huge piece of the conversation missing on behalf of energy organizations and that he can help to remedy that disconnect through creative writing.

There are very few people who know as much and who stay as up to date on current events as Stephen Heins. He voluntarily travels the country to energy conferences and continues to be part of the conversations surrounding energy, the environment, communication technology and has a unique view on the way they are all connected in what Steve calls “The Internet of Things”.

Please email Steve or call (920) 918-8098 to make arrangements.
