Profile Summary

I co-founded and was CEO of Vixar, which was sold to Osram in 2018. After 2.5 years with Osram, I have recently retired, and am open to consulting opportunities, and interested in supporting start-up companies. Prior to Vixar, I was a Director of R&D within the Honeywell VCSEL business. I have a Ph.D. from Stanford University in Materials Science, and an MBA from the Carlson School of Business, University of Minnesota.
