I have always enjoyed tinkering, creating, and learning new things. It started in with LEGOs and these days takes the form of dabbling in 3D printing and programming.

Since those glory days of LEGOs I received a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from Santa Clara University, worked for a medical device startup in Silicon Valley, a machine shop for an oil & gas contract manufacturer, and most recently co-founded an urban farming startup in Houston. Outside of my professional endeavors, I had been using my experience to assist other family and friends with their own passions and pursuits.

Texonimus was born out of this collision of passions: the desire to create and the motivation to help others.

Not long ago I watched a TEDx talk about finding our true calling that I related to personally (video posted below – I recommend a quick watch). In short, it spoke about how some of us don’t have one interest or passion that leads to a traditional career path. Instead, some individuals jump from one interest to another developing skills and knowledge along way. These broad range of skills can be an asset allowing them to adapt and learn quickly to new industries and bring a unique perspectives to problems.

I want to use my diverse range of skills and experience to help others pursue their passions.
