Shawn Frayne grew up dreaming of being an inventor. His heroes were the inventors of yore, like Thomas Edison and Tesla. Growing up, he was inspired by TV shows and movies, like Beyond 2000 and Back to the Future 2 - specifically, when Marty McFly gets eaten by the holographic shark. Believe it or not, to kick back and relax - he likes to have a cold beer and think about inventing other things... though he is fine with cheap beer, and has even been lovingly called Frugal Frayne by his team. Shawn recalls that Edison once said, All you need to invent is an imagination and a pile of junk - and he lives by that, with the added part of having his kids around in the mix. He studied physics at MIT, and post graduation, while everyone was heading to Silicon Valley, he was curious if anyone could still be an inventor. He decided to pursue this dream, and eventually cycled back to the inspiration from back to the future - the hologram.
