Our New Co-Founder
We went to Thailand to visit Bam because he’s a professional chef and we wanted to get fat. And while we did eat some of the most delicious food of our lives, we ended gaining way more than just some jolly jelly. As it turns out, Bam is a RISD industrial design graduate as well as a the French Culinary Institute one. We met him last July when he took a break from slaving away in elite New York kitchens to attend our DIY class at NYC Resistor.
Each bite of the inspiring dishes Bam introduced us to led to talking about our dreams for the future of food. Consequently, this quickly led to sharing drawings and AutoCAD files.
At the end of our trip we asked Bam to join our team and he accepted on the spot! Last Saturday we picked him up from the Hong Kong airport and ferried him to Haxlr8r headquarters. Since then we’ve hit the ground running finalizing our prototype production with factories and working on a killer pitch for demo day at AutoDesk in San Francisco. It’s been a wild ride so far and we’re happy to have found another true believer to complete our team.
Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that he feeds us too.
