Our Mission

Luminix was founded in 2011 with one question in mind… How can we solve the single major pain point experienced by users of cloud business services – that is, unreliable or unavailable network connectivity? 

Our mission is to bring to market a mobile and offline client solution that can be taken anywhere enabling our customers to bring the cloud everywhere they need to be. We strive daily to help customers in remote areas of New Zealand, small farms in Asia, and at Natural Gas wells in the Appalachian Basin get their work done.

Whether you are a small business or large enterprise, our team at Luminix is laser-focused on market-leading solutions allowing you to manage your opportunities in the field, visit reports in transport, fill out surveys, and take orders while on-site with your customers.

As a Luminix engineer, he uses skills acquired from previous tech roles such as software trainer, database administrator, and mobile developer. His approach to team cohesion is rooted in respect for others, humility in ones skills, and silly, good-natured humor.

When not developing you’ll find him traveling with his wife and probably a drone.
