Experienced technology and business leader with a unique combination of technical skills and business acumen, driven by unrivaled passion and energy, ideal for a rapid growth, high-tech startup environment.
I have been developing new industrial, electronic, electro-optical, and laser products from inception to production transition for over 20 years. I begin by working with customers to translate their rough requirements into concepts and then refine them into a robust, manufacturable, integrated product. I support this with technical and management leadership, recruiting the team members needed to support the development and guiding them through a measured product development approach.
