My real love and passion.

I founded Cortex in 2015 and have spent thousand of hours making it into something I'm proud of. I have a wonderful team who supports our efforts to improve patient outcomes.

Side project.

Worked on this between 2012 and 2015.


Huge project that I thought was going to take over the world. I worked on it for almost a year. I was hoping this would turn into a company, or that it'd help me get hired by Google.

Lived in Boston for 10 months and Shanghai for 6 months.

Side project I did for fun and then pitched some of the team at ZAGG

2012. This was one of the hardest classes I ever took...

Academically the hardest 2 semesters of my life. Worked extremely hard to make this file, which ultimately was needed to get into the Industrial Design program.

A summary of my art and design projects that I did before 2011.

My senior year in high school I was a Sterling Scholar for Alta High in visual arts, because nobody else applied.

2004 - 2007

I was super into animals, the military and motorcycles. Some technically impressive work, but mostly boring subjects and little that is thought provoking.

Lots of dinosaurs, bugs, animals and other critters.
