Open Mic Science presents “Carl Morgan: High Hopes and High Voltage” at the next event at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5 at the Treehouse Café.
In this presentation Carl Morgan will discuss some of the founders’ experiences starting a successful local medical device company. Morgan was one of the five founders of the medical device company Heartstream, and served as its first general manager. Heartstream pioneered very easy to use automatic external defibrillators for the rapid treatment of cardiac arrest.
Morgan holds an master of science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Washington, is a registered professional engineer, and has spent 25 years engaged in medical device research and development. He previously served as an engineer in the Central Intelligence Agency during the Cold War and is a former Air Force pilot. Now retired, he remains the holder of numerous patents that are extremely hard to read, and builds fun things of questionable practicality in his Bainbridge basement.
