About Chris

I'm a designer by background with business training (RISD undergrad, MBA grad), with experience in startups (solar cooker device in China) and business model innovation.

Seeking a technical co-founder or founding engineer with experience in Class I medical devices. Product concept requires expertise in combined mechanical/electrical systems, including small batteries driving vibration components.

Bonus points for experience with: wireless charging, electrical systems embedded in EVA or related foams, footwear or foot-related products, products addressing balance or gait issues, and products required to vibrate at specific frequencies.

I would lead commercial strategy, and need someone to wholesale own the product including working with a domestic manufacturing partner.
