Stratexist came about as a frustration with the current state of technology strategy. Many of the thoughts in it originated when I was running Prokalkeo between late 2012 and early 2014, but I was unable to pursue them at that time due to the time, energy, and stress constraints of startup life. Now, as I’m gainfully employed elsewhere, I have a bit more energy and can fund my passions.
Currently, I hold a B.S. in Applied Physics and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering (Nanomanufacturing focus) from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, awarded in 2010 and 2013 respectively. In college, I did research in mechanical simulations, biophysics, and nanotechnology business dynamics. Out of college, I worked for a time at Naval Surface Warface Center on electromagnetic stealth for submarines (I can say that much, I checked). Between 2012 and 2014, I was a partner at Prokalkeo, an emerging technology market analysis company I co-founded. In 2014, my partner (likely a future guest author) and I decided to close up shop. I now work for Logi Analytics as a Business Intelligence Consultant and all around technical batman.
My research interests include (much of this obvious) emerging technology dynamics, technology strategy, business strategy in general, examining axioms of business, engineering control systems theory (both the nitty gritty of the math and high level design), cybernetics, software design practices, computing, and last but certainly not least, entrepreneurship. I’m also a radical transhumanist.
Outside of my academic interests, I enjoy food, videogames, science fiction, weightlifting (training for competition), and the American style families of competitive Ballroom Dance.
You can find me on LinkedIn, Google+, and Facebook–my name is fairly unique.
