Familiar with a wide range of  topics, Stuller is particularly knowledgeable about energy, from the exploration of crude oil to the refining and marketing of gasoline, as well as  issues facing the electricity industry. He is co-author of the book, Perfect Power, published by McGraw Hill in 2008.  Done in concert with the Galvin Electricity Initiative, it was the precursor of 2011′s  An Electric Revolution. Stuller’s highly acclaimed book on the wine industry, Through the Grapevine, has been used as a text in Sonoma State University’s Graduate School of Business.

A Washington State native, he spent two years at Pacific Lutheran University, where he played on the school’s basketball team.
