In the summer of 2017, I worked as a project management intern at Nuance Communications Inc. This is the primary project I was hired to work on.
Zulu is a concept for a peer to peer, cloud based data center. A product aimed to both enterprises and consumers. Zulu serves as the AirBnB for local storage. Users can rent out their unused disk space to Zulu, creating a location for Zulu to store encrypted files from its Enterprise customers. Bypassing the need to run a power intensive, expensive data center. Zulu helps consumers earn a passive income, while using state of the art software to store hundreds of thousands of redundancies for its enterprise clients across hundreds of thousands of personal computers worldwide.

Trapezoid - Monitor Riser
The Trapezoid is a monitor riser, and desk organization system. Building on my experience from the Thunderbolt Display/iMac monitor riser comes Trapezoid. A more utilitarian system to help improve your posture while you work, and help organize your workspace. An open negative space allows for easy storage and access, along with a cable passthrough and management system for desktop cables.
