Principals

Shane McKenna

Shane is an Engineer, Artist, Designer, Master Craftsman and so much more. He is a true innovator in every area or endeavor he undertakes. It is not unusual to find him crafting a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture on the same day he is developing a new manufacturing technology. He has been a key player in the development of countless products and processes. He has deep experience in every stage of the product development process, and has a deep understanding of the big picture. His ability to design with the end in mind shortcuts the traditional product flow by giving customers manufacturable designs often in the first draft. And it is not uncommon for Shane to add meaningful and innovative IP to projects, to boot!
