What do you consider your most significant career accomplishment to date?
Selling my first company to Blue Hill Research and starting as Blue Hill's Chief Research Officer
How do you define success?
Success starts with doing what you love. I love being in the middle of technology change and helping companies with the biggest technology challenges.
What motivates you?
Being a part of building the future as we start progressing into 3-D printing, design-based hardware and software, bio-inspired computing, nanotech, cellular and biochemical tech, and a fully on-demand and ubiquitous economy.
What is the first interaction with technology that you remember and what did you think at the time?
I got my first computer, a Commodore 64, back in 1983 and it changed my life to be able to create programs, save the results, and then run them and impose my will on my TV screen. After I saw the power of combining people and technology, I never went back.
Fill in the blanks:
If I didn't do my current work: I would be a biomedical engineer working on bridging the gap between man and machine.
When I'm not working: I sleep.
The highest compliment someone could give me: is that I'm helping to build a better and more interesting future.
