That's it folks! Hope you enjoyed the visit to CES 2016!
This is a tool to increase the effect of your plant on your environment. It looks like a fan that blows dirt. Science says it does more than that.
The microphone on this listens inside your head for your voice. So it can be used in loud environments like concerts. Prototype. Didn't work amazingly well but it did work. No exterior sound. Great chatting during my long walks in big, noisy cities.
Born in D.C. As an adult I've lived in Europe.
I was born in Washington, D.C. in 1976. As an adult I have lived primarily in Europe.
My first job was on a small horse farm at 12 years old. I took care of three arabian horses after school. At 16 I began working on election campaigns for US Congressman Jim Talent. Each of the four campaigns brought new challenges, competitors, issues and media environments. It was there that I discovered my love of starting organizations with small groups of dynamic people.
I have been fortunate to be able to help grow dozens of organizations. In some I am able to support with ideas, by connecting people or by supplying capital. In others, I serve as the leader during the initial phase until another leader emerges to take the organization forward.
I have helped grow a wide range of organizations. One of the first lobbied for healthy food at the college cafeteria. This was followed by a community garden project in a disadvantaged city in the US. Recently I have been involved in advertising, technology, services, fashion and real estate.
I have also served as a director and in an advisor role to several companies and two Chambers of Commerce. Occasionally I lecture in MBA programs.
I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Currently I am a Commis (Chef) at Restaurant Me. I began cooking at the age of 10. Bon Appetit is the first magazine I read regularly, cover to cover and now I am a fan of their online version at Epicurious.com. My cooking inspirations are my grandmother, my friend Manolo, Hug at Kaiku, Thang at Restaurante Me and Rebés at Embat.
I'm also a gadget fan. Both early adopting and long suffering.
