“I’m passionate about applying technology appropriately to solve our clients’ most challenging business problems. Often, clients will have blue-sky ideas and say, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if …’ but they don’t know how to turn that vision into reality. I help them realize their vision and accomplish their goals through creative technology solutions.”

When he isn’t busy turning clients’ dreams into reality, Jon enjoys spending time with his family, skiing, camping, or taking in a Portland Timbers game.
