Key Accomplishments

I have started two previous business endeavors. One was a 3D visualization company called Silicon Visions providing services to architects, interior designers, and advertisers. The other was called Method RC and we developed high performance bodies for radio control cars that were designed with advanced aerodynamics. These automotive bodies were developed with computational fluid dynamics and extensive testings. I've helped rebrand and grow companies from the inside (as an employee) and from the outside (as a consultant), created new profitable divisions and brands, and released numerous successful electro-mechanical products. In other words, I'm a focused, driven individual with an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for developing great products.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Looking for a results driven partner that shares my passion for wearables and is fully committed to the success of the business. Advisors/partners will ideally have a strong Computer Science background with experience in one or more of the following: programming (embedded, web, and mobile apps), cloud computing, backend, and full stack development. I am looking for a true partnership where we can share and debate our ideas openly, but then completely support the decisions that were made. Honesty, integrity, and a rock solid work ethic are extremely important to me.

As an Advisor

Happy to answer questions and help point people in the right direction.
