The Brand Begins. The mission was a simple one: create a business and a brand unlike anything else. With that mission directive in mind, we decided to focus on general principles, not specific industries. In particular, we knew we needed to create a business that ventured into many areas, not just one. A tech-driven business that utilized high-tech, low-tech, and the imaginative powers of natural tech possessed by the human brain. A business that harnessed our creativity, ingenuity, and background in consulting, engineering, technology, economics, law, medicine, and aviation. A business that lived in tomorrow, not yesterday or today. A business that concerned itself with the way things could be, not the way things were or are. And a business driven by possibilities and potential, not one governed by rules and limitations.
When all was said and done, we concluded that the only type of business that met those criteria was a frontier tech company. Or, to put it another way, a tech company dedicated to expanding the scope of human endeavors by expanding the frontier of technology and its applications. And with that decision, a brand unlike any other was born.
Going Boldly. To be honest, keeping one foot on the shore just isn't our style. So when we created Blue Perigee, we had to go all-in. That means we're liable to enter any consumer or business area where there's an opportunity to expand the frontier.
At the present, our current and upcoming products and services include:
(1) Free online tech education via our in-house-produced publications;
(2) Free online updates about advancements in the world of tech;
(3) Creator consulting for individuals, groups, and organizations;
(4) Creator certification for individuals, businesses, and cities;
(5) An in-house institute dedicated to exploring frontier technologies and their applications;
(6) A video-content service that pushes the frontier (Fall/Winter 2021);
(7) Communications & gaming using our innovative, acronym-based platform;
(8) Tech-focused advertising opportunities;
(9) Specialized, tech-centered, radiology-related solutions dedicated to sourcing and boosting; and
(10) Two breakthrough ultrasound services (Fall/Winter 2021).
With a comprehensive portfolio like that, you simply can't lead the way in tech unless pushing the envelope is at the heart of everything you do.
Original Brand. Brands can certainly develop their own personalities and reputations but every brand is built upon human knowledge, skills, and experiences. For an introduction to the knowledge, skills, and experiences that led to Blue Perigee's original brand, just review the Tech Specs below.
Tech Specs | Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Blue Perigee's CEO possesses a B.S. with honors (major in biological sciences) from an East Coast university's School of Arts & Sciences, an M.D. from an East Coast university's School of Medicine, and advanced medical expertise gained while training at two Southern universities.
Overview. Our CEO is a seasoned entrepreneur with a tech background in medical-sector businesses. As a self-made businessperson, he knows first-hand that merely maintaining the status quo is not a blueprint for success for individuals or businesses.
The Early Years. To be a successful tech CEO, you need a long history of unique experiences, adaptation, and overcoming challenges. And our CEO has exactly that kind of history. For instance, he proved his mettle early on by earning academic honors while attending a private boarding school, by balancing competing work and school obligations while attending college, and by relying on his business acumen to secure research-assistant contracts for himself with prestigious institutions, such as Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Career. Consistent with his leadership credentials, our CEO is a board-certified radiologist with a background in internal medicine and nuclear medicine. To date, he has two decades of combined experience in field-level radiology, radiology recruiting, and radiology-team management. Moreover, he has worked with hospitals in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast, has served as Managing Director of Radiology Services, and has always left his mark due to his unrelenting emphasis on efficiency, quality, and professionalism. As Blue Perigee's CEO, he oversees the company's general business operations and he is also the company's primary point-of-contact with respect to all medical-sector matters.
Personal. Far more that just a physician and business leader, our CEO is a private pilot, a member of AOPA, a car guy, a hiker, a skier, a wine connoisseur, a guitarist, an Akita lover, and an avid traveler. Over the years, he has driven and owned high-performance cars and motorcycles, served as a medical advisor on a reservation in a remote part of Utah, flown in a hot-air balloon over Napa Valley, traveled throughout Europe, and piloted and owned advanced personal aircraft, such as the Cirrus SR22T.
Tech Specs | Architect of Technology & Strategy (ATS). Blue Perigee's ATS possesses a diploma from a renowned, pre-prep-school academy, a diploma from a top-ten prep school, a B.S. with honors (double major in Engineering Science and Economics) from a Southern university's School of Engineering, and a J.D. with honors from a Midwestern university's School of Law.
Overview. Our ATS has a tech background in engineering (emphasis on aerospace and mechanical engineering), computer science, management of technology and innovation, economics, law, and consulting. He is known for having the visually creative mind of a designer, the analytical, detail-oriented mind of an engineer, the big-picture, strategic mind of a quarterback, and the passion and soul of an artist.
The Early Years. To be a successful ATS, you need a well-rounded tech background as well as a long history of scholarship, leadership, bold thinking, creativity, and excellence. And our ATS has precisely that kind of history. For example, his background includes editor-in-chief of the school newspaper, editor-in-chief of the school yearbook, class vice-president, valedictorian, recipient of a prestigious award for being the most outstanding person in his graduating class, dorm prefect at two different schools, head of the Parents' Weekend Committee for the School of Engineering, research assistant at a major university's science library, recipient of the Dean's Scholarship for Academic Excellence in law school, two-time recipient of a prestigious award for earning the highest grade in his law school class, recipient of a perfect score on a directed-research project in law school that revolved around the use of computer-simulation evidence in the courtroom, Law Review member for two years, including a year on the Law Review Editorial Board, Moot Court finalist (one of the sixteen finalists in a competition that featured more than 300 law students), Moot Court judge, and graduation in the top 10% of his law school class.
Career. True to his renaissance nature, our ATS has a diverse career that has spanned a wide array of fields and accomplishments. For instance, his professional work experience includes energy management consulting on projects for a major university, local governments, and businesses, research into the scientific and commercial feasibility of nuclear fusion for a technology think-tank that included a satellite-company executive, a preeminent physicist, and the former head of a federal government agency, primary researcher for a series of articles on tech transfer between the government and the private-sector, law clerk and speech-writer for a law firm's senior partner, author of an article on Pacific Rim business opportunities for a law firm's client newsletter, co-author of a law firm article on international trade that was published in a major Midwestern business magazine, sole representative of a law firm in a meeting with the Consular General of Mexico, architect of the branding for a law firm's international business section, expertise in corporate, international trade, antitrust, patent, trademark, Constitutional, and administrative agency law, and brand, competitive strategy, and innovation consulting for new and established businesses. As Blue Perigee's ATS, he designs the company's consumer and business offerings and he is also responsible for company creativity, ingenuity, innovation, technology, brand strategy, and competitive strategy.
Personal. The personal life of our ATS is just as varied as his work life. For example, he is a photography and videography buff, a fan of classic literature, an aviation and space enthusiast, a budding sport pilot, an early adopter of new technology, a pizza aficionado, a close friend of two Alaskan Malamutes, and a life-long traveler who has visited 50 states and ten countries. Moreover, among other things, he has flown a glider, traveled down a Jamaican river on a bamboo skiff, driven a car hundreds of miles through unfamiliar territory in central Mexico, snorkeled with wild stingrays in the Virgin Islands, traversed an ice cave in the Swiss Alps, ridden a bullet train from Paris to northern France, gone ocean-kayaking in Aruba and Hawaii, observed blue starfish on the South Pacific island of Viti Levu in the Fiji Islands, and encountered kangaroos and koalas in Australia.
