Building a Better Tomorrow

I'm an entrepreneur, maker and writer obsessed with all things 3D. I turn ideas into business models, sketches into forms, and prototypes into products. I've spent the past ten years learning how to start things, fail fast, win big and do it all over again.  Think I can be helpful?
