Director of Research and Development

  • In the summer of 2008 I took on a freelance design project designing a brand new product which is now named AirCut. Out of hundreds of applicants for this project I ultimately was chosen to design and prototype this new product. The inventor and I came to an agreement that I would design and engineer this product for free, but upon completion of the project that I would become part owner in his new company New Life Ventures, LLC. I spent 9 months part time designing and prototyping this new revolutionary haircutting product from the ground up including the industrial design, form fit and function and complete CAD package including models and drawings. I officially became part owner of New Life Ventures, LLC in August of 2009 after supplying the inventor with the finished working prototype.
