He has also had numerous engineering and science positions in industries from aerospace, to medical devices, and thermal processing.

When not in the lab or office

You can find me golfing, hiking, surfing, or DJing.

Soleic tech applied

I would love to see our technology applied to golf balls.

My vision

I want to see a world in which plastics are not found on every beach, freeway, and alleyway.
