Computer scientist, MBA, recovering politician, all around geek. Microsoft, Harvard. Strangely obsessed with golden retrievers. I love solving hard problems. I love making products that make people happy. And while lots of people agree that we must rebuild American manufacturing, I'm really excited we have been able to build the prototype for what the next generation of American manufacturing should be.
