Founder and CEO
An FAA-licensed remote pilot, Christian’s background is primarily in the space of aerospace engineering and bionics (biologically-inspired engineering). He has previously served on a student-led effort to develop a Pulsed-Plasma Thruster (PPT) under support from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Raytheon. Christian also participated in NASA Lucy’s L’SPACE NPWEE, developing a new method of lunar seismic data collection for the Marshall Space Flight Center. He carries intern experience with the Port of Tampa Bay in international logistics. His contribution is in leading the team in line with a technically complex vision.
A: An obsession over seeing the cyclic, patterned world and how it works. It tends to hide brilliance in plain sight.
Q: What is the most important attribute of leaders today?
Vanessa's background is primarily in the corporate and trade sectors. She holds a master of science degree in industrial and organizational psychology, where she learned to translate methods of management that create a workplace that is effective and desirable. In addition, she carries experience with the Greater Maricopa Foreign Trade Zone (GMFTZ), one of the fastest growing trade zones in the western US, providing valuable knowledge of regional logistics. She has been a volunteer for the non-profit organization, ACES, for over 6 years.

He values integrity and a razor-sharp attention to detail. Austin has experience in accounting and financial planning, having worked in the past analyzing and organizing financial records for a restaurant corporation as well at a financial planning firm. Exhilarated by the vast applications of additive manufacturing, he is passionate about propelling Rosotics towards a global force in the manufacturing sector.
A: Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins, BE 2.0 by Jim Collins, and How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
Q: What three books can you recommend?
In pursuit of unparalleled quality, scale, and simplicity.
Rosotics produces hyper-efficient metal additive manufacturing solutions to solve tougher problems in industrial engineering. With the Rapid Induction Printing approach, we enable industry to additively manufacture structures using far less energy and material resource than any other alternative method. We have developed a breakthrough platform for large-scale production that utilizes this approach, in order to radically simplify implementation and redefine where additive manufacturing can be applied.
Long term, our intention is to use simplicity in order to vastly expand the scope and scale of additive manufacturing.
