Before Ning, Steve was Director of Engineering at Immersion [IMMR], which pioneered tactile feedback and human touch technology. Previously, Steve was a project leader and design engineer at IDEO, where he developed more than a dozen successful products for companies including Cisco, Nike, BMW, Steelcase, McDonalds, and Caterpillar.

Today, Steve is on the board of directors of Sunrun [RUN], Sentient Energy, Pocket, Mode Analytics, Bolt Threads, and AutoGrid. Past investments include Control4 [CTRL] and PrivateCore, which was acquired by Facebook.
