Matt Baker, Product Development and Design, studied aviation electronics at Colorado Aero Tech in the mid 90s and, more recently, completed a degree in Interior Architecture and Design at Ohio University. He started working with UltimateAir testing and protoyping a potential product in 2009. He is an experienced designer, and has practiced with architects in South Florida and was a lab technician at Sunpower, Inc. here in Athens, Ohio. He loves being in an innovative workplace. Matt explains, "The process of good design is very interesting to me. Being a design thinking person I like to test new ideas for viability. The ups and downs of the design process is as much physical as it is intellectual. If nothing else is accomplished in the design process, I usually gain some important insight about why things are made the way they are. The wonderful thing about the RecoupAerator is the way in which it effects our architectural decisions. It makes us think about fresh air and ventilation, and I believe it has the potential to change the whole building industry. This product allows people to build more energy efficient and longer lasting buildings, while improving their indoor air quality."
Matt has been a cyclist and bicycle mechanic for over 20 years and worked designing and developing an auto-shifting bicycle transmission concept which has been patented.
