Leo joined Alloy after spending a few years in the aerospace industry developing life-saving explosive devices for ejection seats. He was drawn to engineering by an innate need to know how anything and everything works, ranging from consumer electronics to his own surfboards. Coming from Southern California, he’s always drawn towards the beach and warm, sunny weather. When he’s not deep in CAD or tinkering with a prototype, you can find him hitting home runs in his slow-pitch softball league, reading up on modern history or skateboarding around town looking for his next Kolsch.
