Do you remember picking up an educational video game only to have your expectations met with mediocrity? We do too. Adie Studios wants to change that. We believe that education and video games can and should have a lot in common. Both are chances to achieve excellence through challenges and rewards. Our product, Project Acolyte is an old school RPG style game that teaches players write code as they explore a detailed universe of legacy, mystery, political intrigue, and rediscovery. Adie Studios is in the process of creating our first software product that is foremost an engaging game with driven story line in a detailed universe.

I'm a senior at Foster, studying Finance and Entrepreneurship. After graduation, I'd like to start a career in corporate finance for tech startups and relocate to Silicon Valley. I have experience in financial and business strategy, as well as technical training in programming. While I'm in no way an expert in Computer Science, I feel my foundational knowledge helps me to more effectively analyze business decisions that require understanding of technologies. In addition to my schoolwork, I've interned at a couple of startups, and have real world experience. If you're looking for someone to do capital budgeting, capital structure, pricing strategies, or any other function of FP&A, I'd love to help out.

Mission: To avoid climate disaster, we need to switch from gasoline to electric vehicles, and from coal and natural gas to grid-scale wind and solar. Better batteries enable both of these transformations. Our mission is to accelerate battery development. We will do this by serving as the de facto IT department for the battery industry. Problem: Cloud Instr. has grown out of a pain point in my PhD research as a battery scientist - the software used to analyze battery test data consists of clunky Excel macros or obsolete legacy software. In industry, tedious data analysis can take 25-50% of an engineer's time. Product: Our first product is a software platform for battery data. We feed it test results and in 1 click I can generate plots that used to take an entire afternoon. The draw of this tool is its ability to save time for routine analysis, and future developments will add more sophisticated analysis tools. Traction: We have been using an Amazon Catalyst award to finance freelance development of the platform. This summer we onboarded our first industry client in Oregon and we are working to add the next batch in the near future.
BS/MS Civil Engineer with PE license. Work experience includes 6 years of commercial construction project management experience with buildings ranging in value between $25-$180M. Two projects achieved LEED Gold. As a LEED Accredited Professional, I have extensive management experience consulting with designers, installers and governmental agencies towards developing sustainability design and programming elements for new facilities. See below for a select list of sustainable building elements for which I have management expertise. My prior roles crossed all functional lines including design, construction, cost analysis and commissioning. • Solar photovoltaic arrays • Rainwater capture systems and storm water filtration systems • Green roof planter modules • High power and water efficiency measures • Dynamic glazing (windows that self-tint based on the sun’s position) • Building automation systems (automatic blinds & lights based on occupancy and sun’s position) From an environmental sustainability perspective, I keep abreast of the new technologies and legislation that are being implemented across society. As a result, I will bring practical knowledge of best practices and a first-hand understanding of how to implement new sustainability systems.

Rentcito was created to take the pain out of the process of renting your investment property. We provide an online service that allows landlords to list, market, maintain and track their rental property remotely. Rentcito provides tools that allow Landlords to receive rent on time, find new renters and fix problems as they arise. At Rentcito we set out to build easy to use technology that helps Landlords spend less time managing their property and more time focusing on what’s important to them. We currently have a limited beta and looking to launch with an MVP this spring.
The problem that we're looking to solve is how can we get more homeowners/business owners to adopt existing technologies that reduce their water footprint and reliance on grid water. We are building an interactive web tool to precisely evaluate the suitability and financial payback of a particularly technology in their building. After a building owner uses the tool, we would like to provide them an internet-connected water meter to measure actual savings and gamify this progress - people can compete against their neighbors, allocate water bill savings towards their personal financial goals, and visualize the actual environmental benefit.
I am a third-year law student at UW in the Law, Business & Entrepreneurship concentration, and will also graduate from the Foster School's Technology Entrepreneurship Certificate program.

I am inspired by the enthusiasm of entrepreneurs, the analytical mindset of engineers, and the data-driven intuition of business professionals. The opportunity to work in this field is the reason I decided to focus my post graduate work as I have. My main interests are in technology commercialization and startup formation/financing.

Check out the link to my "Professional Profile"...it's a pretty good explainer about me (turns out that doesn't show up on the main page...it can be found here: https://goo.gl/tFo5CD) Some things not there: I am trying to write a book; I have a 20-month old daughter; I have a degree in Film/Digital media; I prefer communication via email, text, Slack, small groups, or one-on-ones (networking events are hard and terrible for me); and I just went back to school at age 32 to get a Masters degree in Entrepreneurship. After undergrad, I moved to some places, worked for a while, saw some good stuff and some scary stuff and just kinda tried to do the adult thing. Now I'd like to try to do some more interesting, off-beat things to hopefully make my mark on the world (no matter how big or small). Also I prefer medium-walks in the forest to long-walks on the beach. That sand gets everywhere...

Our project aims to elevate owners' experiences with their pets through an innovative goggle. These goggles will be secured to your dog's head with plenty of soft paddings. In addition, our goggles come with a video camera that allows the users to record their favorite outdoor activities through their dogs' perspectives. These will also be fashionable as we hope to develop interchangeable pieces of accessories that could be swapped easily. We also hope to develop a smartphone app that would retrieve the videos from the goggles instantly.
