I do my best to bring a strong vision to the company and motivate people using a positive attitude. I also like to get my hands dirty and am great at creating new products and developing new ideas.

What makes you the best?

I thrive on creating, inventing and building products and teams alike. Both require you to be nimble, tenacious and embrace a sense of adventure.

How will you stay the best?

By listening. Information is key to making correct decisions. I pride myself on being an approachable CEO who has gained the trust and loyalty of his employees. I acknowledge their talents and value their ideas, feedback and suggestions. I recognize that it’s their contributions that have allowed my company to grow.

Favorite Motto?

Zig when they zag

Favorite People?

Musk, Tesla, Hawking.

Favorite Places?

Favorite Products?

Any tool of good quality. I’m not generally impressed with products otherwise. Usually a product is a combination of a watered down idea, with little functionality, and a lot of marketing.

Current Passions?
