Thomas Q Brady has been sketching and prototyping since he was barely able to read, starting with the Commodore Vic 20. Considering his prototypes more toys than anything else, he assumed his collegiate training should be in something more employable, like a double-major arts degree in psychology and philosophy. Later, Thomas fell backward into a legitimate career as a design technologist at frog. Along the way, he has built run-the-business back-office software, business simulations, interactive marketing, high-fidelity prototype hardware and software, Arduino-powered bluetooth caller ID watches and even some web applications for clients and for fun. Along the way, Thomas has enjoyed the opportunity to blog, both independently and for-hire, author a couple whitepapers and even file a couple patents.

In retrospect,… read more
