Cofounder, Professor, and Recursive Awesome in Saint Paul, Minnesota
I'm a Co-Founder of Lab651, where we enable companies to use sensors, mobile apps, and data visualization to change the way that they do business, and a founder of Recursive Awesome where we apply ML & AI technology to business problems in the areas of the Internet of Things.
I'm the owner of IoT Weekly, a publication covering current trends on the Internet of Things, a co-founder of Applied AI and EmTech North, a 501(c)(3) non-profit to advance Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Technology in the Upper Midwest, and an adjunct professor teaching a graduate-level course on the Internet of Things at the University of Saint Thomas.
I co-founded IoT Fuse, a non-profit to help advance the Internet of Things, the Arduino.MN user group focused on building products using open hardware and co-launched the first Internet of Things Hack Day, @IoTHackday in 2014.
I was a co-founder at Code42 Software and have co-organized the Mobile March Conference and IoT Fuse, which have more than 1000 attendees. I also founded and organized the Mobile Twin Cities User's Group for enthusiasts interested in mobile technology to share, learn and network with each other.
I have spoken at a wide variety of conferences on mobile technology and the Internet of Things using Arduino, iOS, Android, Ruby on Rails, and Google Technologies. I'm an inventor on a number of patents and helped publish Pro Android Python with SL4A by Apress Publications
I spearheaded the launch of the Arduino teaching track at CoderDojo Twin Cities which provides me with the one on one opportunity to help our next generation of students learn computer programming and give them free access to technology.
