I graduated with a degree in Physics from Dartmouth College in 2001 and received Ph.D. program in Applied Physics at Stanford University in 2009.

While working on my PhD, I began to appreciate the way new technolgies can have a dramatic positive impact on the world.  Together with a group of other students, I became passionate about building new measurement technologies for applications in precision agriculture.  In May 2009 we formed a company called Solum, Inc. and in 2010 we received funding from Khosla Ventures, one of the worlds leading clean tech venture capital firms.  Solum helps farmers increase yields and reduce environmental impact by providing agronomists with tools that can produce faster, better soil nutrient information on every acre at an affordable price.
I was born and raised in Detroit Lakes, MN and currently live in California.
