Lumenance engineers work hard and have diverse interests. We invite you to meet several individuals in our Lumenance team.
Eric co-founded Lumenance to provide product development services. Eric is highly qualified given his personal engineering journey, a trip that took him from a mechanical engineering degree straight into the electrical world. His first job with an electrical wiring company helped him understand the industry’s need for electromechanical engineering, and he built Lumenance for that purpose. Since 2008, he has worked for six OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers in the transportation industry, and he grew Lumenance’s reputation as a preferred partner at each stage of product development. Outside of work, Eric continues to explore his childhood interest in cars through motorsports around Columbus, Ohio.
Francisco designs interior components, most recently for infotainment and audio for an automotive OEM. Before that, he worked for an aerospace OEM as a manufacturing review board engineer, and his responsibility was to analyze parts damaged during production to determine whether the parts could still operate correctly. He understands how to navigate the unique challenges each industry offers, and he appreciates that both industries are based on the passion people have for cars and airplanes. Francisco sees the world as an engineer, always thinking about a better way to accomplish something.
Javier is an inventive electromechanical engineer who builds automotive and aerospace wire harnesses. He sees the world like an engineer, always seeking ways to improve a process and make life easier. In 2016, Lumenance sponsored his mission trip to Tanzania. He spent a week helping villagers improve how they transport water from 2.6 miles away up their 7,900-foot mountain. While there, he found a simple solution for illuminating their dark houses, and he explored ways to make house-building simpler. He is eager to contribute and quick to act. Learn more about Javier’s mission trip on our blog.
Masao joined Lumenance after hearing about the engineer-focused model, and he appreciates working with people who care about his interests. His background includes electrical, mechanical, and mechatronics, and he currently works as a styling engineer, a position he enjoys because it allows him to know more of the entire design process. He wants to understand how things work, something he picked up while building treehouses, bunk beds, and bicycles with his father. He fed this desire by building vehicles for SAE competitions in college, and he continues to enjoy building things recreationally. Read more about Masao’s engineering journey.
