About Jon

I love science, engineering and math. I hated school at first. In fact, I dropped out of college as an art major to be a ski bum. When I first went back to tech school I actually could not add fractions and had to start all over at a 4th grade level. But somewhere along the way, like in algebra, I had a teacher who told me; "math is easy, you've just got to dedicate 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I did, and got a A. New habits around studying started to form. I graduated tech school with honors and after several years in the business of designing building systems engineering, I went back to college for my bachelor's degree. I ended up taking all the math up to linear algebra and differential equations, which is after all the calculus classes. Also, those good study habits helped make the dean's list many times for a high gpa.

Now I help people and companies save energy. I have two great kids and an awesome wife. I played ultimate frisbee at a high level for over 3 decades, coaching many teams and even placing high at nationals and worlds. I love ultimate.
I also teach skiing, snowboarding, and have competed in the freestyle championships of skiing in moguls. I was a spring board divers and medaled in college on both 1 meter and 3 meter boards. I found my own diving camp back in Boulder about 15 years ago and ran it for a few years before moving from Boulder. I now live and work in Denver.

I know how to look first at math through your eyes, and see what the best way YOU like to learn is... then go from there, after finding out how much you want to learn.

If you would like to learn about how technology, sciences, research, math, physics, and engineering affect our whole world and day to day life in general, give me a call! I'll be more than happy to help you understand and learn with confidence, what ever you have in front of you that is currently challenging.
