About Navid

I get paid to design products and have founder skills in user experience design and strategy. I am the lead designer for a top 10 medical company. I have won an award for an application design by the Nielsen Norman group. My experience in two other startups was as a founder and CEO, one startup was very similar to the disruptive technology/company OPower. We were first to patent and design a solution but OPower scaled much better.

I currently am interested in founding a company that uses artificial intelligence technology. This is the next big thing. I am less interested in developing core AI technology, but in rather finding creative uses to apply it. OF course, I have ideas and would love to meet an engineer who wants to work together seamlessly on them.

On the other hand, I am open to your ideas as well and helping you craft your business if it somehow uses AI technology.
