Key Accomplishments

I have worked on numerous start-ups in the last 3 years. Running/owning a contract engineering firm with a full time staff of seven has allowed me to work with many start-ups. Learning the ins and outs of the business with other talented entrepreneurs. I provide engineering and systems architecture design for my clients and have launched three of my own start-ups. Rigado, my consulting engineering firm has been successful and is growing quickly, completely bootstrapped with no outside financing or loans. Lumenplay, a smart phone controlled light strand has started it's first round of funding, with manufacturing ramping up currently and placing product into Apple stores in under 9 months. R360UND is the third, a sports action monitoring platform that is being designed with a top tier action sports company. I have a history of successful product design and product launches. I have managed and designed projects for start-up customers like VendScreen, Instabeat, WigWag, Cardea Associates, LoadIQ, and Completely Focused and overseen the engineering by my staff of products for startups like KoKo Fit Club, BrightBox Charge, Tag Optics and many others. I bring more than just a bio/electrical engineer to a company. I have a talented staff of engineers at my disposal to move from a concept into a viable product to a thriving business.
