Francy Pantz LLC is owned and operated by Alex Francis, a 25 year old Coloradan. His whole life he has been captivated by the sciences and technology. At a young age he started building computers and trying to invent new things. After receiving his first Dell computer in 2008, he quickly discovered how to take it apart, reassemble it and eventually upgrade it. After this there was no turning back.
He quickly progressed in the realm of technology and went as far as to create a small hydroelectric mill. Using wire and magnets he was able to generate a small current in the hopes to charge his iPod. This last venture never came to fruition though.
In highschool he quickly discovered his passion for math and the physical sciences. At Kent Denver School he competed in the egg drop and bridge building competitions. After completing AP Physics he knew he wanted to continue his career on this path. Upon graduating from Kent Denver School he enrolled at Bates College in Lewiston Maine.
Having lived in Colorado his whole life he knew he wanted to get outside of his comfort zone and experience a new part of the country. He chose Bates College for it’s prestigious academics and small campus. He quickly registered as physics major and never looked back. While at Bates College he was a member of the sailing team and assumed the responsibilities of Social Chairman and Maintenance Chairman.
In the summer before senior year Alex completed an internship in New Zealand at the Institute of Earth Science and Engineering. There he studied seismoelectric waves and their properties. He would later continue this research for his senior thesis at Bates College.
Since graduation Alex has continued his passion for science and technology. He actively creates new projects with Raspberry Pi’s and hosts a homelab where he explores new technology.
