Jon has over 25 years of experience in high tech manufacturing, ranging from building and launching Satellites into space to manufacturing the fist ever consumer 3D printed shoes. He started his career as an Engineering Officer in the Navy but has found his passion helping emerging technology startups grow their business and products to change the world we live in. Jon’s personal passions are a combination of sports, nature, building (just about anything) and brewing beer. Although he has German roots like Nils and would love to hear Jake play oompa music on his tuba, his specialty is brewing Belgian beers that would pair nicely with Heather's cheesecake. Don't try to copy that pairing without consulting Jon because Steve is already working on the patent.
