A bit more about me...

I have loved weather and the outdoors ever since I was five years old. This love was aided by growing up in the foothills of the Rockies in Colorado and then studying at the University of Utah at the foot of the Wasatch. From this love, I have now spent most of my life buried in the world of meteorology, web development, and photography.

For the past decade, I was the co-founder and chief technology officer at OpenSnow, a company dedicated to providing weather forecasts and in-depth analysis for skiers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. On the side, I also manage a handful of projects under the Bugtree brand, ranging from contract development work to coffee roasting. Prior to starting OpenSnow, I was a program manager at the National Weather Service and a developer for the National Center for Atmospheric Research.

When my head is not lost in the clouds or buried in snow, you can find me somewhere outdoors hiking, skiing, biking, camping or playing soccer. You might also find me on the other side of the planet on one of my frequent travels. In a window seat, of course.

Some projects I've worked on

Bugtree

A mishmash of all of my projects and ideas I've had over the years. We do everything from design to coffee roasting to clothing. We help make cool stuff, help other people make cool stuff, and tell people about cool stuff. The company formerly known as Andrew Murray LLC and formerly-formerly known as Lunarnoon way back in 2003!

OpenSnow

The company I co-founded in 2011, my CTO role involved making sure all of the gears keep turning to provide snow forecasts for ski areas all over North America. Whether it was making sure our websites were up, the model forecasts were being generated, our apps worked on the newest cell phones, or testing our product on the slopes... it never was a boring day!

OpenSummit

After many years of people asking "But what do you do in the summer?" after starting OpenSnow, OpenSummit was finally the answer. First started as a summit forecasting service for 14ers in Colorado, it now has expanded to detailed forecasts for most location important to your outdoor activities around the United States.

Make Cooperative

The only coworking space in Minnesota incorporated as a cooperative. All the perks of a coworking space with the added benefit of community ownership. When I'm was not giving tours to random people or making sure our bills were being paid on-time, you could find me paining or building a wall with our members.
