For those of you who didn’t see the news, I recently started as the StarMax Productization Lead at Gravitics, Inc. Gravitics is a space station hardware developer that’s bringing high-quality shipyard fabrication processes to the aerospace industry. Their StarMax module is basically the largest pressure structure you can fit into a Starship payload faring. In my new role, I’ll be supporting both the business development and architecture teams as we work to transition StarMax from a prototype into a product line.
What does this mean for Starbright?
First, the startup idea I was chasing when I left Voyager to start Starbright doesn’t look ready for prime time yet. I was hoping to license some promising technology from a friend’s company to try and apply it to mobility markets, but they weren’t ready for licensing discussions yet, so that startup idea is on the backburner for the foreseeable future.
Second, regarding my consulting work through Starbright, I’ll be putting that into hibernation over the next several months, wrapping up existing commitments, and not trying to start new engagements. Still feel free to reach out if you’d like to chat. I’m always open to an introductory call, and can often suggest others who may be able to help you once I’m no longer available. I’m also going to be keeping this blog running, and will use it for posting things that aren’t directly related to my new work at Gravitics. Thanks for following me on my ongoing adventures!
