About Me

I am a truly full stack developer and entrepreneur with a disruptive and innovative nature. I have a background both educationally and experientially in physics, electrical engineering, robotics and computer vision, computer engineering, enterprise software development, UI and UX development, marketing and graphic design, business development and management, global supply chain/production design and implementation, and investment funding. Everything to build a complex technology from the idea stage to production.

I've had experience in academia, the government, corporate and start-ups, and gained both credentials and experience from each one. With a desire to innovate and the skills, tools and connections to do so on a global scale, I'm ready for wherever the next idea takes me.
