Our Team

Lars Hubbard, President

email: lhubbard[at]

Not content to confine himself to any one thing, Lars studied Workplace Democracy & Radical Economics in college; worked as a residential contractor; owned a restaurant; was an executive chef; managed a hotel; and was CTO of an internet/telecom startup before finding his way to the craft of specification consulting. Twelve years later, he is still challenged by the complexity of the work, and is constantly seeking new ways to leverage technology to make the work more accurate and precise. He spends his every spare moment with his wife and four children.
