CEO/Founder at Boombotix
|From the very start, I was fortunate enough to land an engineering position that incorporated technology with art and design. At DiCon Lighting, I pioneered a line of ultra high power fiberoptic illuminators used for ultra efficient architectural systems. I seized the opportunity to learn everything I could about product design. In my nights I would transform from engineer to artist working on a variety of mediums from sneakers, headphones, skate decks and toys. As fate would have it, my technical background was fused into my art which put me in position to launch BoomBotix mobile audio.
My primary focus is around technologies that will enhance the user experience for mobile audio. Music is the most valuable social currency, and I plan to make sharing it simple and fun with technology.
