Tech that works for you
With diverse backgrounds both in and out of tech, we bring a range of perspectives and ideas to every project.
We speak English, not technical-ese.
We know the right questions to ask to deliver on your strategic goals.
We take project management seriously to keep everything on time and on budget.
We help small businesses and organizations reap the benefits of technology, so they can not only adapt but thrive in a fast-changing world.
With a focus on geographic information systems (GIS) and web app development, we work with clients who do real things in the real world - conservation organizations, regulatory agencies, water utilities, and companies in the oil and gas, forestry, and energy sectors.
They walk away with useful data and automated insights that help them make confident strategic decisions.
These are the values that drive our work:
We value communication – in both words and visual design – that boils complicated issues, problems, and insights down to what really matters.
We believe everyone would be better off if people focused more on creating value in their business relationships rather than maximizing personal gain.
Nothing motivates us more than seeing our clients and customers make tangible, measurable progress toward their goals.
We started our own company because we want to be in control of the work we do. We help our clients and customers build their own internal capacity so they can feel more confident and independent too.
A rock nerd geologist by training and an entrepreneur at heart, Alex brings broad experience in project management, GIS, database design, and the natural sciences.

No matter the client, he loves digging into complex problems to uncover elegant solutions.
He’s also an incredible cook, a passable photographer, and a novice but enthusiastic snow kiteboarder.

His technical knowledge extends across full stack, mobile and embedded system development. He loves teaching others and sharing knowledge.
