Nothing excites me more than truly disruptive technology. The kind that stands the world straight on its head and changes the way people think about what is possible. Through innovation I see an opportunity to help people think in new ways about engineering, technology and the problems we encounter each day.
The course that I wish had been offered in college is the geography of technology. Where is a specific piece of technology or invention created? What does it become? How do ideas and inventions move through industries and society with time?
Non-traditional transfer of ideas and technology across industries is what interests me the most. Traditional development is hard and it takes a long time, its also predictable. When one field or industry can utilize information and technology created in another field things tend to move a little faster. The people and companies that are technologically aware and capable of identifying, leveraging and utilizing technology across industries are the ones that hold the keys to our future.
I look forward to the day that I can walk through the world and see one thing, no matter how big or small, that I touched, either created or improved that is appreciated and adds value to society.
