Norris Tie is the co-founder and CEO of Exosonic, Inc. Since childhood, he has been passionate about making the world smaller through faster transportation. In pursuit of this mission, Norris studied aerospace engineering at UCLA. He spent three years working in the aerospace industry as a propulsion engineer, all on vehicles that break the sound barrier, such as SpaceShipTwo and NASA's X-59 low boom demonstrator. After his time in industry, he determined low boom supersonic travel was the future and attended Stanford's Graduate School of Business to found Exosonic with his co-founder and CTO Tim MacDonald. Now they're on the mission to provide supersonic travel everywhere by muting the sonic boom.
