A serial entrepreneur with a focus in Artificial Intelligence and robotic systems, Andrew got an early start into robotics
as a child, being brought home regularly by law enforcement while out "road-testing" the
new motorized machines that he had created. He subsequently started his first company at 16 producing
wifi connected motor controllers for robotics before IOT existed. His robotics prowess, passion,
and applications rapidly expanded due to his voracious appetite for improvement and his brilliant
mind. His robotics passions have spanned many fields including: Military, Medical, Automotive, Automated
Warehousing, Robotic Parking, creating disruptive companies focusing on mobile robotics, driverless
vehicles, human / robotic symbiosis, etc.
Recently he was featured in a TED talk centered on creating disruptive technologies through innovative means. As quoted from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, "With more entrepreneurs like Andrew - we could see a bottom-up renaissance of American manufacturing."
In a true sense, Andrew believes in the symbiotic nature of robotics and people. Through his public school outreach programs Wreck Lab Make Lab and others, he has been able to motivate school children and their parents enabling them with hands on experience in creating simple projects. He believes that through education, exposure, and demystifying so-called complex systems, that people will be be able to achieve new heights as a society.
Besides his CEO tasks, Andrew directly leads all Aitheon development teams and still finds time to develop different components of Aitheon.
Andrew continues to "road-test" his creations, as you can see on his instagram.
