I am an engineer working in the consumer electronics industry. I have experience in acoustics, metal work, blade smithing, martial arts, house construction, growing my own food, making my own tools the list goes on. I have survived in the wilderness with minimal supplies for days, traveled to Hong Kong and served a tour of duty in the US army. I have been involved in designing product for about 12 years. From conceptual design and market research to sales and marketing and even dealer training. I've seen many good products fail and many mediocre products flourish.
