I am a husband of 19 years to my wife and we have two teenage girls that we are enjoying as they learn and develop into the world. They are the reason I am committed to earn save and invest enough to provide for them now and to not be a burden in the future. I am clear about what that means and how I intend to produce it. My primary offer is one of leadership, operations and efficiencies in guiding my team into bringing forward a new technology to the market. I have over Eighteen years experience in Aerospace Engineering Design, Development, Leadership and Management with proven skills in Operational Efficiencies and Profit Production producing measurable, sustainable results; Execution of High Profile Programs meeting significant financial Obligations; Implementation of new tools and practices to improve financial performance using innovative approaches; and proven results in Staff Development and Leadership.
Owner/Managing Partner @ Owner/Managing Partner @ What do you get when you cross an aerospace engineer and an artist? STAX3D Printing. We found that while working together, our projects combined the precision of an engineer with the (cough, cough) "creativeness" of an artist. 3D printing captured the left and right brain into one giant tool capable of handling our unique, and always correct, methods of design and development. We want to share that with you. We want our neighbors, businesses and children to begin thinking in an organic way to solve problems by whatever means works best for them. 3D printing will do that and we can help!
STAX3D is a new business concept providing consumers a full service 3D printing store. The retail stores will incorporate both business and hobbyist pursuits, while serving as technical and creative support. STAX3D will offer a retail and educational space for those working on, or interested in, 3D printing projects and applications utilizing the latest in 3D printing technologies on the market. Our intent is to be a showcase and retail location for 3D printers, supplies, and products, as well as offer scanning and printing of items. We will have a separate area dedicated to scanning full body figures for figurines, trophies etc. We intend to show the consumer the enormous possibilities of 3D printers first-hand because currently, online is the only place to view multiple printer brands.
STAX3D clients span from the professional that requires a visual 3D representation of their product or concept in order to help convey their own vision (or simply to meet their clients needs); as well as the hobbyist, who is interested in 3D printing for fun rather than for a professional purpose. STAX3D printing has a technical staff with expertise in 3D modeling and printing technologies and will provide printing services and support to consumers in need of end products to solve their concerns.
