Brief Summary
Primarily found constructing or manufacturing new gizmos and gadgets in collaboration with creative thinking entrepreneurs inside of TechShop SF. I can also be caught at WordPress meetups, Google Ventures pitch nights, Startup Weekend (where my engineering took the top prize) or other hacker spaces.

If you are looking to fire up a Kickstarter, build a prototype, get featured in Make magazine, or run a display at next years Makerfaire. I might be your kind of consultant.

I can manage any kind of project, but when you get into mechanical, robotic fun stuff then you've engaged me at my core and I'm far better at my core.

• Coming up with a template to help qualified individuals sustain themselves, set goals and divide their time efficiently to achieve self-support while working towards a robust life long sustainability plan.
• Finding creative ways to hand these tools off to motivated people and organizations such that destitute is at best a station in life where one might stop if their path leads there without becoming a place where one gets stuck.
