Design / Engineering
- Arman has been making things as far back as his memory goes, in both the virtual and real worlds. At the age of 10, when he wasn't writing programs on the commodore 64, he would construct crude robots out of junked machine parts, his toys, and unsupervised household appliances. All this was unwittingly preparing him for my true passion later in life: Automation and Manufacturing – the interplay of sensors, communication, control, and electro mechanics.
- Since then his working life has included many industries ranging from the tangible products of Aerospace, Injection Molding, and CNC machining to the formless protocols of M2M Networking, Software, and Design. Over 20 years of experience at both small and large companies has culminated in launching a prototyping lab where he spends most of his waking hours. His door is open to the exciting technical and manufacturing challenges of makers, hackers, and entrepreneurs all over Los Angeles and Orange County.
