David Roberts

Chief Engineer


For me, it’s all about bringing innovation to our customers.  There’s nothing better than hearing again and again how our products have helped them save money and be more efficient.

At MicroDynamics you’ll find an enthusiastic team that is driven to make our products even better and faster.  We’re the leader in the industry not only because of our technology, but because we’re genuinely excited to be doing what we’re doing.

When I am not working, you’ll find me with my wife, son, and our golden retriever.  My son and I are involved in high power rocketry, and when we’re not doing that we’re building telescopes and custom cars.  My wife and I also do a little ballroom dancing.
