About Bob

I'm a tech-savvy entrepreneur/co-founder/advisor with 2 decades of experience building successful technology-focused companies (early web -> social -> health tech).

I am passionate about finding creative, 10x solutions to challenging problems that improve modern living through technology and data. My areas of interest include health and wellness (including fitness/human performance and longevity/anti-aging), personal informatics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, connected devices and robotics, transportation, AgTech, and 3D printing/mass customization.

If you are working on solving these types of challenges (no matter how ambitious), let's chat! I am especially interested in connecting with those having backgrounds in artificial intelligence/machine learning and human physiology.

Feel free to connect via LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/in/troia) or Twitter (@BobTroia).
