Why are you interested in the "Internet of Things?

IoT has been hyped as the 4th Industrial Revolution. I see tipping points today in low cost connectivity, sensing and big data that remind me of the tipping points in digital wireless and networked computing that launched the internet economy early in my career. Who wouldn't want to ride this next big wave?

What do you want to learn or accomplish at a RIoT meetup?

As Executive Director of NC RIoT, I hope to bring together and grow the community that makes this region as the go-to place for IoT business globally. The ingredients -- great people, talent, universities, entrepreneurs -- are all here. We just need to partner to make it happen.

How did you find us?

The same way I hope other IoT enthusiasts will find each other. By getting out and meeting people, sharing ideas and participating in the community.


I cut my teeth for 20 years in mobile electronics product and technology development before moving to NC State to chew on nanotech and wearables. I'm now focused on growing the IoT economy and community as Executive Director of NC RIoT.
