David is an electronics engineer specializing in digital systems, FPGAs, and image processing. He's worked at such companies as Delta-Q Technologies, Verisante, Mistywest, and Signal Laboratories. His passion for high-speed imaging began in 2006 after seeing the cool things Mythbusters were doing. Unable to afford a high-speed camera at the time, he set out to build his own, which ultimately lead to Chronos. In his spare time, he makes science and engineering videos on his Youtube channel tesla500.
Matthew (Hardware / FPGA Engineer)
Matthew has been with us from the beginning of the Kickstarter. He is famously known for his pastries, code, love of sushi, and general tinkering abilities. Please do not leave shiny gears in the office area… Matthew has been known to be very interested in things both shiny and gear shaped. He is the other half of David's brain. What David can't figure out Matthew most likely has the answers and vice versa.
Tabatha (Operations Manager and IT)
She is the crazy person who runs around in the shadows, writing emails in the early mornings. Her background includes chef, network admin, and cat wrangler. Jack of all trades that never seems to remember to go home. If you ever email into info@ at 6 am and get an email back in less than 10 seconds… it’s probably Tabatha.
Tyler (Operations and Shipping)
He likes sunsets and long walks on the beach... preferably at night. Catering to the international inbox, Tyler is the night owl who takes care of the info@, ships your cameras around the world, and will be doing the fun admin tasks. He doesn’t bite and plays well with others. His background includes: getting stuff done, looking at shiny things, computer games and various hobbies.
Owen (Software Engineer)
Software engineer by day, and hardware tinkerer by night. He has a long career in wireless technology, network protocols and real time systems. He's known to have a particular fondness for cryptography, computer security and problems that venture into computational number theory. In his spare time you might find him making hot sauce, praying to the church of GNU, or pretending to be an amateur race car driver.
David R. (Software / User Interface)
The guy trying to make the camera interface pretty and intuitive. The lone designery-type in the herd of low-level hardware engineers that is Krontech. Often swears at Inkscape, though he secretly loves it. As a hobby, David makes open-source games! Check out his latest project at https://frogatto.com. You can find him on the forums as David Roberts (DDR), Graphical Developer.
Sean (Production [Workshop Monster])
He's the general all-around "Utility creature". Producing Chronos cameras, building lab furnishings, rigs & jigs, and otherwise serving in a sourcing, scavenging, scaffolding, scheming, suspiciously-cackling tinker role. The KronTech staff have learned when to be wary about any quiet cackling in the back; It usually means something creative or alarming is about to be captured on a Chronos-in-testing. He also is known for his contributions to the Will it Mow? YouTube channel run by Tesla500, including the "Mow-Hem" containment chamber, and associated rigs & jigs.
Simon (Debug & UI)
Simon is David's brother and self-taught programmer who helps to implement new features in and debug the user interface on the camera using Qt. Simon enjoys racing and crashing with and without cheats in Burnout 2: Point of Impact. Check out his YouTube channel sparker599!
Mike Paciorek (Production)
Everyday at Kron Technologies is different and unique, there is no one job for each staff member, but rather a team collaboration filled with rich new ideas which lead to many fun and exciting projects. This is were Mike found his niche. Everyone is talented in many fields from engineering all the way to art. Mike fit right in with his art displayed on his bench and music, often playing guitar in the afternoon, filling the office with jazz. 'Overall, an amazing tech company which leads and paves a path to many new opportunities' is Mike's words after his first month at Kron Technologies.
Kurt Manglalang (Electronics Technologist)
We think Kurt might have sneaked in when the bay doors were open one day. He came fully prepared with a tool kit and smile. Kurt is the calm in the sea of large personalities. His lends his focus to the healing bench making test jigs and wrestling with RMAs. When not working for the Man (David?), Kurt works on his own electronics projects such as mechanical keyboards!
Stefany Allaire (FPGA/Hardware Engineer)
Stefany came to us after watching a crazy dude with cargo shorts and sandals talk about a Burnaby company called Kron Technologies. She saw the crazy bunch of nerds that populated the fifteen minute mini-documentary, and decided that was the place to be. Stefany is not a stranger to technology, start-ups, or just shenanigans in general. She has accomplished a lot and has a lot of quiet (and not so quiet) wisdom to offer. Stefany is enjoying her west coast lifestyle here at Kron Technologies. She is also the mind behind the C256 Foenix project!
