Almost... but not quite local, I grew up in Southeastern Wisconsin and got a degree in Computer Science in 1992. After a several years living out/about I settled in the San Francisco Bay Area as a systems engineering consultant; working at well-known companies like Cisco Systems, Intel, Philips Electronics and Sun Microsystems.
By 2001 the "DotCom" era was over and I decided to make a career shift. In 2003 I moved to the Twin Cities to attend graduate school at UMN, finishing in 2006 with a degree in Geographic Information Science.
After several years as GIS Coordinator at a local water resources engineering firm, I began to miss the feeling of innovation and excitement that surrounds the Bay Area. And so, in 2008 I launched Northstar Geographics (NSG), specializing in applied geographic analysis, web mapping application development, business intelligence services and GIS consulting.
