With 2 engineering degrees from Stanford, 3 patent submittals, and trade secrets spanning both the aerospace and clean tech industries, Cory plays an integral role in developing our innovative IP and shaping our vision. After graduating with a master’s degree from Stanford, Cory joined Northrop Grumman in R&D leading work on new aircraft development. He submitted 10 invention disclosures on groundbreaking proprietary aircraft before deciding it was time to satisfy his cleantech itch. Aviation has a big impact on climate change, and technology wasn’t moving fast enough so Cory saw an opportunity. With a vision about the future of travel that is clean and efficient, he convinced his co-founders to come and help him lead the charge.
