Our Story

We set out on our smart home journey to create technology that's easy-to-use, offers simple installation, and is affordable for families in every walk of life. Our team is passionate about the work that we're doing, and we've got a wonderful Sales Team in place to help guide you through every step of the way. 

If you're in the home building business, an AV Pro, electrician, home technology professional, distributor, or just someone looking to add all-in-one smart home tech to your business offering, we're here to help.


Say Hello, to the NuBryte Sales Team

Tell us a little about yourself...

I come from a background in the telecomm cloud environment, and have also worked in the building automation controls industry focusing on serving commercial solutions. I'm thrilled to have joined the NuBryte team, and have loved being apart of their smart home journey.

I'm also an active mom-to-be, and can't wait to add our first little one to our family in June.

What's your favorite NuBryte feature?

I love the motion detection for lighting. We have one in the basement where we generally enter and exit, but its normally always pitch black down there and my hands are almost always full.  With NuBryte, being able to walk in and have the lights turn on and off without me having to put everything down has been a simple, but significant change!  

What are your days spent doing?

There's always exciting things happening in the NuBryte Smart Home world! The NuBryte PRO Program is being developed as we speak and we are getting excited for the roll out. We're working on all the finishing touches to our PRO network, that will include special pricing, training & certification. PROs simply will sign-up on our website to become a PRO, and be guided through the simple steps there. 

What's your interest in smart home technology?

I love smart home tech because I love seeing the automation and ease in play.  Our lives get busier and busier and to have your home turn into something that operates automatically and "behind the scenes" is just plain cool. And, if I’m ever wondering what is going on at home, I can simply pull up my phone to double check that I left the house in complete order. How many times have you been on a plane and wondered if you turned off the lights or armed the security system? NuBryte can help!

Any exciting hobbies?

I'm very active so I love Crossfit, hiking, and snowboarding/skiing. Oh, and I'm super passionate about animal rescue.

What's your background in?

I was apart of the Channel and Corporate Account Sales team at Microsoft for 11 years. I also run an international development non-profit that I started called Community Empowerment Network.

What's your favorite NuBryte feature?

I really like all the built-in security features the most, particularly the video feeds you get if someone were to trigger your NuBryte alarm. Unlike our old hard-wired security system, I easily added our external garage into the security system without laying wires or investing in a series of signal repeaters to the outbuilding. That's what I like about NuBryte. No extra wiring involved! Replaces your existing light switch for an instant smart room.

Why did you want to get involved with home automation?

Technology today is incredibly flexible and allows families a much higher level of control and security at much lower prices than systems of the past. This flexibility is only going to grow as other household systems become even more integrated, and I'm excited to see what the future holds for NuBryte.

Any hidden talents you'd like to share?

I’m a fix-it sort of guy and do nearly all my own home improvement projects, including a nearly complete gut and restoration of a 1904 Seattle bungalow. I’m working on a full bath remodel now...and of course it will have NuBryte smart control in it!

Tell us about your background.

I worked in the telecommunications business as an Account and Business Development Manager, and focused on helping companies of all sizes connect to the cloud.

Your favorite NuBryte feature is...

I like the security feature that records 90 seconds of video and stores it to the cloud if the alarm has been triggered. What sets NuBryte apart is the two-tier alarm system - if the alarm is triggered, it will set off a siren alarm AND flash the NuBryte connected lights throughout the home. Plus, I like the control with the NuBryte app, and I can activate my security from anywhere.

What have you been up to lately?

I'm gearing up for the NuBryte Road Trip! We're taking the smart home experience on the road, and I will be traveling the US on a multi-city tour to demonstrate the all-in-one smart home solution. It's easier to see how smart home tech works in person, and I'm looking forward to sharing the NuBryte journey along the way.

See where I'm headed to next! If I'm in your neck of the woods, sign-up for a spot. I'd love to meet you!

What’s your favorite thing about your career? 

I love meeting new and interesting people. Getting to know them, building relationships, and helping them solve a business issue are all things that motivate me. That's why I'm looking forward to hitting the road and meeting new people!

What do you plan on doing while you travel the USA?

When I'm not out showcasing NuBryte, I'll get to spend some time with my wife in our RV...and catch up on a good book! One of my favorites is about the economy, and is called the World is Flat by Thomas L Friedman. It covers how technology has made it easy for people around the world to compete for jobs simply with a computer and Internet connection.
