Assistant Chief Technology Officer in Gustavus Technology Services and Director in Web Services

I grew up in the Dakotas and Minnesota, and I graduated from North Dakota State University with a B.S. in History. Most of my friends were computer science majors, and thus, I ended up pursuing web development as a career. My first job after graduation was as a graphic designer for the Fargo Forum. I then served as a project manager, operations manager, and ultimately the content manager for I left Fargo to take a position as the e-commerce coordinator for the South Dakota Department of Tourism, and in 2005 I joined the Gustavus community. I have had the pleasure to serve as the director of the Web Services Office, and more recently, the assistant chief technology officer for Technology Services. My wife also works at Gustavus, and together we are responsible for two children and three cats.
