My primary specialty today is laser CNC prototyping and fabrication. My past primary expertise was point of sale software design.
I've lived and worked inside the city of San Francisco and all around the Bay Area. Currently have offices in San Francisco, Oakland and West Oakland.
Having participated in almost a million dollars in successfully funded crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, and KivaZip, I'm very useful for information to anyone that wants to launch a new product. Even if you don't want to use these platforms.
I have struggled very hard to make a non profit homeless shelter with a maker component (3D printing, laser cutting, and CAD/CAM). So far I am a bigger expert in what doesn't work than what does. I'm still grinding on the problems that plague homeless adults and looking for things to teach kids so they won't grow up to be homeless. To be frank, there are way easier problems to solve with much larger rewards.
