(2006, Current) Convergent Power, Inc. : Founder, VP of Engineering, Director of R&D,
Convergent Power, Inc. was founded in 2006, as a research and development company, for the express purpose of exploring the commercial potential of the Dynaflux Generator, Dynaflux Motors, the SERPS Device, and a variety of other inventions based upon the principles of Energy Resonance. To date, ten new patents have been filed, and numerous prototypes have been constructed and tested. There is absolutely no doubt that these concepts are valid. However, the time remaining until commercialization of one or more of these innovations is directly proportional to the availability of funding, and R&D money is a scarce commodity in these times.
