Concept: Wealth Bar This was a concept I came up with in 2011 when staying at Hotel Andez near Wall Street. It’s call Wealth Bar. The concept was taken from Apple’s Genius Bar where the company emulates Jobs’ passion for putting customers first. “And the more time customers spend in the branches, with the bankers in an “advisory role,” the more likely customers are to sign up for additional banking products (rolling over their IRA’s and 401K’s for example). Which doesn’t […]
This was my first portfolio. Not knowing what to do for my high school senior project I decided to use my Scottrade portfolio as a learning opportunity. Articulate my thought process and communicate what I was learning in technical terms. As of today I’m starting my equity portfolio from scratch. In my free time I also keep a list of startups I think are interesting. Below is the a short list. Startups Textiles and manufacturing Bolt Threads Thread International Carbon […]
Class icebreaker. Instead of introductions each person was to make a self portrait collage. Once finished portraits were collected and randomly redistributed through out the class. Each person was to interpret and share with the class what they could gage about the person from the portrait they received. I got sophisticated, natural, elegant, organized, coffee lover, bold.
Website for streamlining processes. The company I worked for at the time had no computer or internet in the office before I join the company. As I slowly changed things (remodeled the office and set up a computer) I later inquired with management about bringing other people onboard to let me focus on big picture items. Transfer work from the CEO to me. I also approached management about having an online presence for recruiting and efficiency. Out of the phone calls made […]
Concept: Bare’ is biomimetic bra. Different than biometrics as you’re not collecting data. The design should mimic the underlying antagonistic muscle structure for a better support and movement as the breasts sit on top of the muscle and move in a figure-8 motion. One theory behind breast cancer is that the bra under wiring restricts the function of muscle moment to drain lymph. Process: Ideation. The goal I’m shooting for is a supportive second skin. If the breast sits on top of the […]
Gentleman’s Emoji Set I like the idea of Kimoji’s (animated emojis that move) but have yet to find one that I would use. I wanted something more refined- poised and subtle yet distinctive and sure. I often send mono answers to friends; ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘?’. I would buy a emoji set like this. *Adjusts neck tie* I’m sure.

“The big premise is that there are duplicate eyes” – I Origins, director Mike Cahill Blink is an iris matching app that collects medical data through gamification. What if someone’s iris matches or shows similarities to mine? Does that mean we interpret light the same way, have the same preferences, tendencies and tastes? Think of it like a game or horoscope app, but instead of using birthdays you’re matching characters using the human iris and light. Or information, meta data and the world in my eyes. […]
One of my favorite magazines provided an opportunity for people to invest in it through a platform called MicroVentures. I came across Darling a few years ago when I worked at PCC. What I fell in love with was their mission statement and CEO. The product from there was a given. The content, the aesthetics, even the material/ tactile experience you had holding it. Darlings Mission: “To improve women’s self-esteem by focusing on character and dignity instead of obsessing on body image.” Some […]
I didn’t mention it but at one point while walking through boat I wondered if a friend who will be running the company had consider the possibility of internal diagnostics and hacking. He’s not a tech person and I didn’t bring it up because I didn’t want to dampen the mood. But when it comes to our country, companies and crews, including food, the way feed our country could become a national security issue. Last week friends christened their new […]
