Ted is an Industrial Designer, Interdisciplinary Engineer, and serial entrepreneur who helps develops socially-focused and environmentallyminded products for a better tomorrow. He holds a Masters Degree of Industrial Design from Georgia Tech, a Bachelors of Inventive Design Engineering from Purdue University. Ted is fascinated with the growing opensource hardware and software movements and the positive effects they can have on a community over typical closed models of consumerist product design and development.

A native of Chicagoland, Ted was a former studio instructor at Georgia Tech's College of Architecture and helped grow Atlanta-based maverick design agency EC Design Co. before moving to New York City.

Once in New York, Ted worked for two years as product designer and played a critical founding role in The Windowfarms Project (hydroponic food growing for urban windows), Social Bicycles (next generation Bike Share system), littleBits, (open-source hardware, like LEGOS for electronics), and DoTank:Brooklyn (tactical urbanism group conducting self-lead DIY community improvements), among other groups. During summer 2011, he opened Tomorrow Labâ„¢, a design consultancy that researches, designs, engineers, and develops prototypes for revolutionary electronic products for a better tomorrow.

While usually working at the human scale, Ted has done architectural studies in Scandinavia and architectural design & research work in rural Borneo, Indonesia for Klinik ASRI, a joint rainforest conservation and primary health care clinic.

Ted lives in Brooklyn and works in Manhattan at the Tomorrow Lab studio. He is a city cycling advocate and rides his bike each day.
