Experience building embedded systems hardware and software, robotics, large distributed anayltics platforms and leading teams. Before entering the workforce, I attended Northwestern University where I obtained a BA in French Horn Performance, a BS in Computer Engineering, and an MS in Computer Science in 5 years. I also met my cofounder Kenny where we built competitive autonomous robots for a number of years.
Kenny hails from Singapore before he attended Northwestern University. At NU, he got a BS in Electrical Engineering and an MS in Computer Science. While at NU he met Dan and they built autonomous robots together amongst other projects. After NU Kenny worked for Microsoft/Skype to help them offload video processing from software to dedicated hardware on handset devices. He is an expert in circuit design, software and embedded systems.
