Will is a lifelong intern of disruptive new things. Though he's old school at heart, his curiosity stays new tech focused. Digital transformation is his latest all-consuming passion. His superpower is his improbability drive. (Don't ask where he got it.)
Chris is a walking contradiction. He has worked at a 700,000 person bureaucracy (US Air Force) and has founded multiple companies starting from zero. He spent eight years getting too many engineering degrees and now spends most of his time talking with lawyers and reviewing budgets. His superpower is 'smiling while suffering'.
Tom’s experience ranges from nuclear to space to SaaS to cyber to AI and digital transformation. He loves helping others excel. His superpower is his ability to join companies with paradigm-shifting technologies.
COO / General Counsel
Baha has worked in CAD, 3D printing, and geometry processing for the past decade where he built global engineering teams. He wrote 3D design software used by more than 20,000 users and pioneered a solution to automatically ensure 3D printability of any 3D file. His superpower is building great products by finding solutions to difficult problems.
VP of Artificial Intelligence
An expert in strategy and bridging business and technical realms, Sriram brings over a decade of experience to the Istari Digital team. With a passion for art, design and technology futures, his superpower is in punchy, poetic, or emotional storytelling – as the context demands.
VP of Strategy/IP
With over 15 years of experience in product management, software development, and system engineering, Dwight excels at bridging the gap between what customers say and how engineers meet expectations. His education in computer science and information systems has granted him the superpower of eating elephants one bite at a time through extreme patience.
