About Us

What happens when a fine-woods craftsman, an electrical engineer, and a super-conducting computing PhD physicist get together?

Magic.

Loto Labs was created in August 2014 when three Silicon Valley entrepreneurs met by chance in a baby sign-language class (don’t laugh!). Weeks later, having developed a working model of a magnetic induction vaporizer using only a rudimentary power supply and spare parts, this intrepid trio raised a quarter of a million dollars on Indiegogo to market the world’s first magnetic induction vape.

Bolstered by obvious market demand, leading investors Kevin Lin and Collin Carrier of Twitch.tv came on board in the spring of 2015 to breathe life into the dream.

I’m a “make it happen” kind of guy who decided a while ago vaporizers needed a serious makeover, and I created Loto Labs!

I grew up in State College, Pennsylvania, where I received my Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University. I later earned an Executive MBA from Santa Clara University, Leavey School of Business, in 2013. I’ve served on the boards of several organizations, and have raised capital for a number of companies. When I’m not at Loto Labs, I’m stopping pucks as an ice hockey goaltender, or carving turns downhill skiing.

I characterize myself as a 'recovering academic.' I enjoying applying my knowledge of physics as an entrepreneur to the pursuit of solving complex business problems. I am currently involved in DNA sequencing, next-generation super-conducting computing, and of course, heat delivery in vaporizers.

I am a recent transplant to Silicon Valley from the UK. My background is in physics, a field in which I’ve published over 100 research papers. My PhD is from Cambridge University.

I’m a multi-media artist, designer, and autodidact. I studied fine arts at the University of Western Ontario and have always been inspired to create. Evoke has been a wonderful medium for artistic expression because it has allowed me to showcase woodworking in a context where modern design meets old-world sophistication.

My work has featured at the gallery “Art du Q” in Quebec. I have also directed two independent films. I currently live in Palo Alto where I build custom wood furniture, and design groundbreaking vaporizers!

My spirit for entrepreneurship, and my passion for all things healthy and outdoors, led me to Loto Labs. When I joined, I knew I was immersing myself with a remarkably innovative company in an exciting and bourgeoning industry.

Before Loto Labs, I founded MFG Communications – a boutique PR firm in Santa Cruz, CA. Prior to that, I spent 10 years as a marketing director for a number companies and nonprofits around the Bay Area. I have an MBA from Dominican University’s GreenMBA program, and a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Colorado, Boulder.

I joined Loto Labs at the end of 2015 because of the great people here and the truly amazing products we are working on. I enjoy leading and collaborating with teams in fast-paced environments. When I’m not at the Garage Mahal (our office) I’m hiking/running/biking/surfing, or playing hockey, golf, or yoga.

Before Loto Labs, I co-founded wordlink.com – a social news and content aggregator. Prior to that, I spent 10+ years in capital markets with RBC and ScotiaCapital. I am a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). I have an MBA in Investment Management from the John Molson School of Business, and a B.A. from the George Washington University - where I played NCAA Divsion I Golf.
