Profile Summary

Based on a deep understanding of optical theory, I am a business development professional supporting the optics industry.

My previous roles include a position with AdValue Photonics. There I supported defining and developing value propositions for 2um fiber laser products, mainly for customers in basic and applied research organizations. I also worked for Corning, in a Business Development role. My work there focused on custom reflective and refractive optical systems for visible and IR wavebands. I was also involved in hyperspectral imaging sensors product definition and development. Most of my customers were in the United States Aerospace and Defense market.

Prior to joining Corning, I worked for BAE Systems Inc. as a Sr. Optical Engineer developing production test systems for IR sensors, also providing manufacturing support high energy laser systems, and counter-measure systems.
