More about Michael

In his career in product development and mechanical engineering, Michael has launched products in industries spanning consumer goods to surveillance drones. He has personally brought ideas from concept to market as engineer, project manager, researcher, team leader, designer, maker, and NPD director. He holds 5 patents.

At a young age, Michael fell in love with hovercraft technology. The ability to go seamlessly from land to water is amazing and useful, but Michael was not satisfied with how difficult hovercraft were to use and that they didn't look anything like his favorite cars. Michael built his first hovercraft using plans from a Boy's Life magazine.
