The Team


Ron Justin

Cofounder & CEO
Ron is a US inventor with a 20 year engineering career that has seen numerous prototypes ignite on boot, products that went to market, and a few ventures that successfully exited (and failed miserably). A father and avid mountain biker, you can find Ron shredding in the Sierras on any given weekend.

Kurt Kiefer

Cofounder & CTO
A computer engineer whose passions run the gamut of large scale distributed systems to 8-bit microcontrollers, Kurt has led many hardware and software projects, both in and out of his day job. When he’s not trying out a new web framework, he’s probably in the garage making it work on his automated homebrewing setup.

Sashi Ono

Chief Science Officer
Sashi is a father, embedded systems guru, multi-award-winning competitive robot designer, DIY drone builder, Android hacker, advisor to many start-ups, and the founder of Pure Engineering LLC. We think that he may have made some contributions to alien technology discoveries too.

VP of Operations
Matthew is an avid dirt biker, maker of things, and computer enthusiast with over a decade of experience in design, front end development, 3D modeling, and photography.

Karly Lively

Operations Associate & Creative Writer
Karly graduated with a bachelor’s in creative writing from Western Washington U. She is halfway through her Graduate Gemologist degree with the GIA and is training to be a bench jeweler.
