I'm the founder and CEO of Inventables an online hardware store for designers. We sell small quantities of beautiful materials for manufacturing custom products. We're also the makers of Easel the best free app for design and mkaing with a CNC Mill. Check out this article Forbes did about Inventables.
In addition to Inventables I run ORDCamp with Brian Fitzpatrick of Google. I sit on the board of the Fast Forward exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry and the Tinkering Lab at the Children's Museum in Chicago.
Before Inventables I was the founder of Lever Works. In December 2001 the company was bought by Leo Media.
