Key Accomplishments

In the past couple years I have spent a considerable amount of time consulting on startups, specifically with product design. While I may not be working full time in these startups, I have a minority stake in their success.

I am always looking for opportunities to get involved with people with good ideas and drive. My skill set is specifically tuned to hardware development and I have can lead the process from idea inception through production and beyond.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor
