My New Company

Updated: Aug 23

I'm excited to announce the founding of my next company: Volition.


As the name implies, Volition is all about willpower, specifically giving superpowers of creation to everyone involved in bringing hardware to life.


Many of you know me as the Founder / CEO of Plethora - building a self-programming factory to make prototyping and short-run production faster and easier than ever before. I'm happy to say that Plethora is on a good trajectory: steady growth of our machining business, big new factory in Georgia, and much more.


Plethora has now graduated into an operations-focused business with clear plans for revenue and tech growth. After 5+ years, I knew it was the right time to start working on another big piece of the industry, so I just had to make sure we were on a good footing. To do so, I put my COO in as CEO and secured financing, and I was then able to step down from my operational role. It's exciting to see the team keep executing strong without me, and I'm looking forward to seeing all they achieve.


Through my lifelong journey to build the next generation of hardware engineering, each company I've started has been order of magnitude more ambitious than the previous one. Volition is no exception.


I'm being coy about what we're up to as we're keeping it under wraps, but suffice it to say that this is my most ambitious effort yet to reform the industry and create superpowers of creation for hardware engineers and beyond.


Building on my experience at Plethora, I've taken care to design Volition's plan to emphasize scalability, early profitability, and building a strong culture of execution and innovation from a core team industry veterans.


If you'd like to help out or join me on this journey, I'd love to hear from you.
