I am a 20 yr old engineering student at MIT.
I love extreme sports and have recently started an action sports company which builds this really cool powered snowboard/skateboard called the DTV Shredder

I also started a company which is developing an all electric motorcycle/unicycle called the Uno. The project started out as a highschool science fair project. The Uno first became public a year ago when the magazine "Popular Science" chose it as the invention of the year for 2008 and placed it on their cover. Since then, the Uno has graced magazines and newspapers around the world including the wallstreet journal, The New Yorker, The Chicago Times. The Uno even got me an invite to a pajama party at the playboy mansion and most recently, their halloween party.
School is not necessarily my thing, but i see it as an amazing opportunity. But my real passion is pursuing these kind of projects. I'm planning on branching out into regular electric streetbikes.
