Dr. Bill Cardoso, CEO

Our benevolent overlord is an overeducated Brazilian who became an electronics technician at 13, continued in life to get a BS, MS, and PhD in Electrical Engineering, and topped off with an MBA from the University of Chicago. While taking way too many classes, Bill ran the top engineering design department at Fermilab, the leading high energy and nuclear physics research lab in the USA. After almost a decade in Chicago, Bill moved to San Diego in search of perpetual summers. In San Diego, Bill founded Creative Electron, where he obsesses about building the best x-ray machines in the world. When not on a plane, Bill spends time on the beach listening to Car Talk with his beautiful wife and three kids. And collecting old cars; Bill is also a member of the Model A Ford Club of America.
