Hi!
My name is Walter Webb, the founder of iNNOVATION i/o and a mechanical design engineer. I am very humble to say I am lucky to have a natural instinct for product development. I could boast 30 years of experience but really what does that mean? I know guys with this much of experience and still have not learned anything. In my early years I was a contract engineer which basically means I traveled to different companies to assist in design needs. My thought all along was to learn a broad range of experience in all fields such as Aerospace Propulsion, Airframe Structures, Automotive, Medical, Optics including virtual reality glasses, Toys, Infant products, Pet products and general consumer products. After years of bringing new patents to corporate and handing credit over to direct employees, I finally started my own development company. I was retired once, got bored and could not give up the natural instincts of product development. I have successfully invented my own products, manufactured my own products and marketed my own products. All was a learning experience. Today I am here to help you. That’s all. There are many talented designers out here for sure but there is more than just being a great product designer. Now it is time for me to give back or “pay it forward”. My success is your success, nothing more. Posted below is my resume for your review.

Respectfully, Walter Webb
