RIDEYE: The Black Box Camera for Bikes
Much like the black box recorded on an airplane, RIDEYE's singular purpose is to capture evidence to prove what happened after an accident. Designed specifically for bicyclists and motorcyclists, RIDEYE is operated by a single button, and captures 1080p video in a continuous loop. Should an accident occur, the camera has an internal IMU (inertial measurement unit) that precisely detects the collision and saves all relevant footage for later review.

DARPA: Classified Robotics Project
Applied Minds is a Los Angeles-based think tank specializing in robotics research. DARPA and the US Air Force approached us with a challenge- design a robot which reduces the number of IED-related injuries to dismounted (walking) soldiers.
We developed and successfully demonstrated a fully autonomous robot that used a LIDAR scanner and onboard computers to lead a group of soldiers from the front. It was controlled using a specifically designed glove, packed with touch and gesture sensors, and a wearable, handheld computer. All components were designed and assembled in-house.
Intel Atom Embedded Development Platform
The Intel Atom series of microprocessors are a great fit for demanding embedded applications, like robotics, automation, and in-vehicle infotainment. At Intel, I helped design the customer reference boards used to demonstrate this functionality. Specifically, I focused on balancing performance and thermal management in demanding environments.
By optimizing these two factors, I was able to reduce boot-up time of the Intel Atom-based In Vehicle Infotainment system by 45% and power consumption by 20%, securing a design win with a major automotive group.

Rain Bird Series 5000 Rotor
Rain Bird's high-end rotors are complex assemblies with hundreds of discrete components, capable of precisely distributing water over hundreds of feet. I designed the nozzle system for this product, which required CFD analysis of the flow profile, and 3d printing of prototypes.
