What is your favorite part of your job?Bringing a product from idea to reality with the assistance of our amazing community.
Tell us a little about yourself!I am currently living in Utah with a wonderful wife and 2 cute little boys (WAF is currently very high). My boys are 5 & 8 and are your typical rowdy and energetic kids. I have a bachelors degree in Information Systems and Technology with an emphasis in software development. I enjoy spending time with the family and playing with all things technology related. Smart Home products have been a great hobby of mine for some time and I love being able to work on them every day for work.
What is your current favorite movie?I don't really have a favorite, but some of the movies I have recently enjoyed are The Greatest Showman, Thor Ragnarok, and Peanut Butter Falcon. My childhood favorite is definitely the Goonies. "Hey you guuys!!"
What is your current favorite song?Currently, as of the last few weeks, I would say "The Night We Met" by Lord Huron
What is your current favorite food?Has been and will always be a good burger. If you are ever in the northern Utah area, the Burger Bar is the best I have ever had.
What is your favorite smart home product?The Inovelli Fan + Light Switch. It is the first product that we really involved beta testers on and it turned out to be one of my favorite products to use. You can tell that our community really helped create something special here.
What is your favorite Smart Home Automation?I really enjoy the simple automations that make life more convenient every day. Like a "Good Night" routine that turns off all the lights, closes the blinds, locks the doors, and adjusts the thermostat. Love these types of automations. A cool and unique one I currently use is with our Inovelli Light Strips. Based on different holidays my light strips get set to different colorful effects. The kids really love them and the neighbors are always impressed when they come over.
