StartUps Of Which I am a Principal Technical Designer
- Ubiquity Robotics:
I am a principal hardware/firmware designer for the Magni product which is a 100 Kg payload ready to run OEM robotics base so companies can start running and then add their own added value on top of Magni.   The platform is an open source ROS based platform so technical companies can easily save a year of development time and on the order of $60k to 300k development time by starting their product on our Magni Base. 

Zizmos Earthquake Sensor Network:
I was the principal hardware/firmware/software designer for the Zizmos hardware sensor.  The company has folded pending requests out of the blue to revive its mission to create an affordable network of Earthquake sensors feeding into a fast response backend for then push notifications to cell phones.    

Creativity is the other side of boredom

Once people realize that and overcome the barrier of actually being motivated enough to be creative the world of creativity opens and bordom is put to rest. Try it ... you'll like it!
