Richard Whalley - CV

Former Medical Device Startup Founder, MIT trained Scientist/Engineer and Digital Artist/Musician who led and successfully exited a medical device startup. I love helping people find their creative spark and managing small teams. I build new ways of experiencing health by getting things done in a mundane step-by-step fashion. I focus on engineering, art, consciousness, and creative practices supporting health and self-awareness.
