Steve Blackwell – Founder
Certainly not globally recognized nor sought after, Steve has been working for Dynasthetics for a while. He has no extra letters behind his name, is not known in any special circles of people and NASA has no idea who he is. He has never received a grant, authored any prestigious papers and If he answers the phone when you call, you might consider asking to speak to someone else. He is a founder, but watch this space to see if we can replace him soon.
