A Short History

September

2016

Everlater acquired by MapQuest

Boulder, Colorado | 2013

Co-Founded Monospace Ltd.

Boulder, Colorado | 2012 - Present

Eric Horacek and I founded Monospace, a creative technology firm that specializes in delivering intuitive, beautiful, and useful software solutions for clients and their customers. The firm’s interest and expertise lies in development for mobile platforms (iPhone and iPad) and the web. Our previous clients include the Stanley Hotel, the University of Colorado, Ball Corporation, and Impact on Education.

Joined Everlater Inc.

Boulder, Colorado | 2011 - Present

I joined the six-person Everlater team to work on a white-label traveler engagement product serving over 100,000 travelers. Together, we wrote software that enabled quick and easy travel journaling while abroad for web, iPhone and iPad.

Started work with IMUNA

San Francisco, California | 2010 - Present

I have volunteered for the International Model United Nations Assocation for the past three years. Our staff reaches approximately 6,000 high school students annually to participate in civic simulations of the United Nations, fulfilling our organizational mission of "Education through Simulation." This year, I serve as the Secretary-General for our San Fransisco conference. The Secretary-General is one of two chief executives for our conferences, and is ultimately responsible for all deliverables related to the conference.

Accepted at University of Colorado

Joined Hewlett-Packard

Fort Collins, Colorado | 2007 - 2012

At HP, I worked in the Workstation Innovation Lab, exploring innovative new technologies and experiences and determining their applicability in the organization's future product lines. I had the opportunity to work on projects such as monitoring systems for high performance computing systems, prototyping touch interfaces for animators and creative professionals, and development of experimental software for emerging mobile platforms.

Founded Technology Access Initiative

Fort Collins, Colorado | 2010 - 2012

During my senior year of high school, I helped found a community based organization with the mission of improving access to basic technological tools for disadvantaged students. Today, TAI runs yearly “build days” which teach target students how to assemble a computer, and the resulting computer is donated to needy families in the community. Before I transitioned to an advisory role for the initiative, I applied for (and received) a seven-thousand dollar grant to ensure the program’s continuation.

Freelanced

Fort Collins, Colorado | 2004 - 2012

While in school, I learned basic programming and design by developing websites for various organizations such as the French Nest Market and Amplitude Entertainment.

Enjoyed Childhood

Sedalia, Colorado | 1991 - Present
