My passions run deep into science, technology, economics, and massively scalable computing. These interests have led me from trading bonds on Wall Street, to the deck of a ship studying El Niño and global warming, to flight planning NASA’s ER-2 for the Navy, and most recently, to founding a cloud-based geospatial company that was sold to a Fortune 1000 company. My experiences were driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, focused on where I could maximize my impact on opportunities given to me.

My current focus is to combine these past experiences to help solve the impending labor crisis in agriculture, especially in the fruits & vegetable industry. Automation and robotics are going critical components to solving this crisis, and will provide large shareholder and society benefits. I am truly excited by this opportunity.
