About Me

Among some of the First Racks in the Slant 3D Farm
I grew up on a rural cattle ranch. I attended a one room school house for k-8 and then had to drive an hour and live in a "big city" of 5000 to go to high school. When I graduated, I moved to Arizona to study Mechanical Engineering. While at school I grew restless and decided to start a robotics company. It eventually morphed into a design consultancy which took off. So, I left school to work work full time as CEO and play with multiple ideas that people had approached me about.

My company Universal Mechanisms LLC designed and prototyped all kinds of things. Smartphone apps, and even a newspaper. We created some ideas independently and others came from external clients. But as the company changed I realized that it needed a better foundation. So UniMech was shut down and changed into Slant Concepts

The result is Slant Concepts. Slant is an organization based on product design and micro-production, with a focus in robotics. Slant leverages our networked world and 3-D printing to create and sell products.

Work at Slant has yielded products from a home robot to fishing bobbers. In 2017 Slant Concepts spun off Slant 3D, where I now spend more than half of my time working to make high volume manufacturing accessible to the dorm room entrepreneur.

In my spare time I like to write and tinker around with different ideas.
