What I'm up to:  

I've been operating WhiteSpace Labs since 2013, consulting with a range of companies and inventors to help design and execute their early stage product development research. I've assisted individuals and start-ups understand and develop the invention process by testing their ideas both virtually and with physical models.  I've been able to contribute to the success of many projects by sharing my experiences and insights, focusing objectives, and develop effective teams and development processes and methods.

Background: 

From 2007 to 2013 I served as the VP of Technology at Equipois Inc. As the principal designer and system architect and in collaboration with inventor Garrett Brown, I built and led the LA based company's Research and Product Development facility here in Philadelphia. Our team successfully adapted and transferred the Steadicam™ camera stabilization system into the revolutionary zeroG™ Technology.

Since then, I’ve held leadership roles as both consultant and employee; working on projects ranging from medical devices and consumer HVAC to commercial marine propulsion.
