Jacob joins Azavea as an OpenTreeMap Solution Specialist. Jacob graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from Brigham Young University, and has worked with GIS technologies since 2008. He has used GIS to study demographics and communities’ socio-economic patterns and economic wellbeing. Jacob has also applied GIS to sales and marketing with the company he helped start called Envinsulate. He developed strategies to reach different groups of people while at the same time finding ways to better serve and relate with them.
During Jacob’s free time you will find him spending time with his wife and kids. When he can, he enjoys reading about and playing with new technology — anything from smart phones to TV sets. He is a very dedicated Dream Theater fan so much so his wife rolls her eyes at him every time they release a new album.
