Zeroline Co-Founder, Chief Technology Officer and Principal Engineer Steve Blake possesses 30 years of software development experience with companies ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 corporations. Steve is a San Diego, California native who attended Point Loma High School, San Diego State University and National University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science (BSCS) degree with a 4.0 GPA.
Steve served as Engineering Director at Aonix where he managed development teams of 50 engineers creating software development environments, compilers, debuggers, editors, IDEs, and User Interface development (UIX, GUI) toolsets. He led an international team that developed the Ada Semantic Interface Specification (ASIS) that became an ISO standard.
As Principle Software Engineer at Infogation Inc., Steve led development of mobile Telematic applications for maps, turn-by-turn instructions, wireless off-board map data, and location based services.
Steve served as Technical Manager at Hewlett Packard where he was responsible for 30 engineers creating solutions in Data Storage, Storage Area Networks (SAN), Backup and Recovery (BUR), Disaster Recovery (DR), Continuity of Operation (COOP), Virtualization, Messaging (Microsoft Exchange), Web Servers, Window Server OS, and Security Accreditation (DIACAP).
Steve’s experience as a consultant to start-ups includes the development of a mobile application for Yardsale that allows users to sell and buy items from within their local community without the hassle of planning and holding an actual yard sale; the development of two IOS app prototypes for elder care provider Centergy Inc., and the development of Bluetooth tablet integration for oximeters for elder care solution provider Independa, Inc.
In addition to the pending patent for the Golf MTRx™ swing recognition technology, Steve developed wireless Telematic data optimization techniques as part of patents for Infogation Inc. He holds Security+ certification and is trained in ITIL Foundations, IPV6, Lean Six Sigma, Agile Development methodology, and Technical Management.
A golfer since the age of 20, Steve’s goal is to develop mobile apps and instruction frameworks that are enablers of bio-mechanic information to golfers and coaches. Previously, this data provided with the Golf MTRx smart device app was only available with expensive sensor equipment beyond the reach of the average golfer. The core swing and motion recognition technology of Golf MTRx can also transcend to other sports where the kinetic sequence is fundamental to creating athletic movement and power. Additional sports where this technology can provide bio-mechanic feedback and improve an athlete’s performance include baseball, softball, tennis serves, soccer, hockey, and football placekicking.
Steve is married to Malvina and has two children, Michael, a business consultant who lives in Irvine, California, and Lynsey, a teacher who lives in Sacramento.
