Elias thinks like a user.

Elias understands that the end user is arguably the most important stakeholder in the development of technology, products, and infrastructure. Elias is always asking how it’s made, how does it work, and how can it be better? Driven by a passion for elegance, and inspired by the common objects he uses and struggles to use, he is always finding new things to learn and redesigning the world around him.

Elias earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Union College in Schenectady, NY before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area. He worked on medical devices, product development, and submarines before joining Cooper Perkins.
