THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE PRODUCTS

Teamwork and how we feel about people is at the core of who we are and what we do. We value talent and we work hard to recruit, retain, and appreciate it. And then we empower the talented people who are part of our team. As a whole we are stronger than any individual component and we embrace that in every decision we make acknowledging that your position in a hierarchy has no correlation to your ability to make a good decision. Those closest to the problem typically have great insight into the problem and clever solutions come from unexpected sources especially when everyone feels empowered. Our strength is truly in our team – our products are simply the extension of that team.

Research Scientist

I obtained a BS in meteorology at Florida Institute of Technology and a MS in Atmospheric Science at North Carolina State University. My main area of study was quantifying environmental stress induced emissions of algal isoprene and monoterpenes using laboratory measurements. For the past 6 years, I worked in R&D and new product development at Scott Safety in Monroe, NC. I have worked on the design and manufacturing of many different respiratory protection devices: SCBAs, military gas masks, chemical filters and powered air purifying devices. My passion has always been in the lab, tinkering, testing and designing novel products. With technology moving at an increasingly fast rate, it’s been refreshing to work at Lucidity and incorporate the latest advances into our designs. This allows us to bring user-friendly analytics to the customer without compromising quality or capability. In my free time I enjoy gardening, wood turning, baking and cuddling with my 5 cats. My favorite color is pink, my favorite food is fried pickles and my favorite movie is “What About Bob”.

I graduated NC State with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering in 2010. Shortly after graduation I began my career at CEM. I started out at CEM working as a sustain engineer identifying troubleshooting and resolving issues with current products. From there, I progressed into a role where I transitioned products from design to production. I really found my passion during that time in overall mechanical and industrial design. That is when I made the move full time into Design and R&D working with Lucidity. I enjoy developing new and unique products not only focusing on mechanical design, but over all look and feel of a product.

Since a young age, I’ve been interested in determining how things work. That curiosity led me to pursue degrees in Electronics Engineering and Computer Science. Along the way, I worked as a heavy equipment mechanic, HVAC technician, and as an electronics repair tech for an automated guided vehicle company. After starting at CEM in the System Testing department, I was able to pursue my goal of becoming a software engineer. Since joining the Engineering department I have been involved with several highly technical instruments, providing system component solutions, embedded firmware and user facing applications. For fun I enjoy video games, camping, running, and drinking beer.

Mike started working at CEM when he was 15 years old almost 25 years ago as a summer intern and during holiday breaks. He worked in the engineering department, the machine shop, the chemistry labs, production and testing, shipping and receiving.  He interned for seven years while in high school and while attending the University of Florida pursuing a Chemical Engineering degree. While in Florida he also worked at the Engineering Research Center and on multiple different research projects within the Chemical Engineering Department, including a collaborative project with The Dow Chemical Company. Most of his work in Florida centered around flow analysis, separations, and heat transfer. Upon graduating from UF with a BS in Chemical Engineering, Mike joined CEM full time as a Development Chemist and Project Engineer, initially helping design flow based microwave  synthesizers and scale up microwave synthesizers. He then spent considerable time traveling and working on site with customers in labs and facilities around the world learning what they did and exploring new product opportunities. For over 15 years, Mike held different roles in all the CEM product lines working in product development, product launch, customer support, marketing, and business development. His core passion is conceiving of and making revolutionary new products and bringing them to people who badly need them.  And now at Lucidity he’s able to focus with a team of like-minded people on making mind-boggling new products that completely wow. The look of amazement in customers’ eyes is what drives him. Outside of work he enjoys being a dad, woodworking, playing guitar, playing sports, and exploring the world around him

Mechanical Design Engineer

I obtained a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Old Dominion University with a focus in Mechanical Design. Prior to joining Lucidity, I supported the Department of Defense as a government contractor performing System Engineering and Design Engineering roles. During my time as a government contractor, I worked on process and technology improvement; design and manufacturing of packaging for weapon systems, soldier gear and tools; and the design and manufacturing of electronic packaging for chemical detectors & analyzers in a R&D environment. Growing up in a military family myself, it was an honor to support our military in these roles. I have always had a passion for tinkering, taking apart a perfectly good product just to understand how it works, 3D CAD solid & surface design, and testing & evaluation. I joined Lucidity R&D team less than a year ago as a Mechanical Design Engineer. Lucidity provides me the opportunity to conceptually design a part, get my hands dirty in our on-site machine shop, assemble, test, and evaluate all in the same day. Having these resources on-site, along with a strong-minded and driven team, allows us to deliver high quality, well thought-out, user-friendly products to the marketplace quickly. Outside of work I enjoy being a dad, playing soccer, music, woodworking, and all Boston sports.

I had my first taste of electricity when I was 2 years old and placed keys into the power outlet. My expression was, "its hot, mama!" I have always had a passion for electronics and taught myself basic electronics in my adolescent years. Computers and car stereos were my favorite! Well they still are. I graduated from Nielsen Electronic Institute with an AS in Electronic Engineering presidents list. I started working for CEM after graduation and for the past 20 years have worked as an Electronic Technician, Senior Technician, Support Engineer, and R&D Design Engineer. I enjoy problem solving whether they are mechanical, electrical, or everyday problems. I enjoy my leisure time with family, fishing, disc golf, or anything outside. Being able to work with Lucidity and this highly talented group is a dream of mine that is finally coming true. I am looking forward to the amazing things we are going create and manufacture.

I grew up in a family of carpenters, farmers and construction workers so there was always something to take apart, fix or build around the house. When it came time for college, I decided to go into a mechanical engineering program since I had been around similar projects and problem solving scenarios most of my life. I enrolled into UNC Charlotte in 2014 where I’m currently entering my senior year in their college of mechanical engineering. Through Scouting, I was able to meet the right people that introduced me to my current employers at Lucidity. I am currently an engineering intern at Lucidity where I get to design, build and test subsystems for final products, and I can’t think of a better group of people or place to be working at.

Our Story

Lucidity was formed in 2016 as a subdivision of CEM Corporation. It was formed as a product development team comprised of five people, some of whom previously worked in other areas of CEM, and some of whom were brought into the organization from elsewhere.

What We Do

We are bringing the power of well understood techniques to many more people and locations. We are reimagining these techniques to find new ways to make them more reliable and repeatable, easier to use, and smaller and lower cost.
