Amazing things Alexander's made
I am naturally curious about all things science, technical, and business.

At a young age I was converted into a hardcore space nerd. One of the more interesting/proud achievements is entering and winning multiple science competitions for NASA(one projects even went into space!).

On the software side, I created a lab running various *nix based servers and networking equipment. This lab was used to run real-world experiments with various configurations for various different projects such as VPN, IRC, email, VoIP, and countless others.

My hardware experience comes from tinkering with all embedded systems such as arduino, photon, and rasberry pi. There is something magical about being able to take a piece of silicon and interact with it digitally!

For BluBoard I have been responsible for all aspects of the system for the security, firmware, networks, and cloud layers. I have worked with other companies to integrate their systems and create dynamic applications.

Simple Sense is a great team with an even greater idea. I look forward to seeing their products implemented in all kinds of businesses. In the emerging world of IOT it takes both new ideas and experience to make a great product, Simple sense is the best mix of those two qualities. Their innovation could create new forms of revenue never before seen in the retail space.

Ron Justin Principal Engineer at LGS Innovations recommended SimpleSense where Alexander is Co-Founder

I've known Mark for over a year and am always in awe of what he is creating in the IoT and e-paper space. While this idea is the simplest that I've seen from him, its utility is undeniable. The team around him is equally impressive and I highly recommend working with them.

Chris Wentz CEO at Everykey recommended SimpleSense where Alexander is Co-Founder

Mark and his team are building something that's long overdue in the retail space. They've got a solid team and a homerun idea, I would highly recommend working with them if you have the chance to do so.
