Jesse combines an equal love of the outdoors, snow, and computers. He developed large swaths of both the Gaia GPS apps, map servers, and infrastructure, and is a partner in the business. Jesse owns and operates an organic farm in Montana, where he lives with his family. He spends as much time as possible hiking and backcountry skiing. He has thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail, and speed-skied the John Muir Trail. Prior to joining Gaia GPS, Jesse worked as a ski patroller in the sierras, doing avalanche control. He also developed software and data to help conserve buffalo.
