Dano the Machinist!
To the laypeople of the world, Dano is a machinist. But the real deal is that Dano (aka Jeano) helps in the design, prototyping, and manufacturing of the production of our products. This winter he was instrumental in redesigning the iPad case. More recently he’s been focusing on developing the skateback, the major innovation of this product being the design and construction of a vacuum table that allows for speed of manufacture while simultaneously minimizing waste.
hails from Salem, Massachusetts, the Halloween capital of the universe!
He graduated from Reed college in 2009 with a BA in Psychology. In
school he was most interested in the neuroscience side of psychology and
currently splits his time between Grove and a research lab at OHSU
where he uses a gigantic MRI machine.
Right now, he has a project with two other friends called The Humble Velocipede on Kickstarter. This project owes a lot of its success to Grove, as Dano used his design and machining experience from his work here and applied it to the Velocipede.
When he’s not as Grove you can find him enjoying bike rides, kittens, hot coffee and listening to Mariah Carey. Songs like Fantasy and Emotions really power him through the day!

is not working for Grove, he’s painting and drawing to his heart’s
content. You can see his work on his blog and his website.
