When I was first introduced to the science of sleep in 1994, I had no idea about the future ahead of me. Graduating as a young electrical engineer with high ambition for innovation and entrepreneurship, I received a call from Helgi Kristbjarnarson, MD, Ph.D. who would become my close colleague, friend and mentor. He convinced me to work with him in building solutions that could dramatically change the way sleep medicine was practiced and made available to people. Together we pioneered the development of mobile sleep testing devices that allowed serious sleep problems to be diagnosed at home.
Coming to the United States ten years ago and co-founding FusionHealth was a chance to connect that experience with a larger vision at a greater scale. We started by assembling a team of exceptional physicians, sleep scientists, behavioral scientists, software engineers and business leaders – a true fusion of disciplines. We were, and still remain, a diverse group of like-minded professionals who believe in the restorative power of sleep. It excites me to create solutions that can change the lives of millions the way FusionHealth can. Being able to contribute to that cause is why I am here.
