Noted for his lean and efficient, ROI-minded approach to agile development, Jono has been leading the application of software to solve complex business problems for over three decades.
Following a BA in Mathematics from Dartmouth College, Jono developed project management and budgeting software for US Navy aviation and shipbuilding systems, including helping define the Navy’s first data resource management protocols. As a research faculty member at Virginia Tech, he led the creation of a series of comprehensive inventory forecast models for the nation’s nuclear inventory – models relied on heavily by the Department of Energy to make billion-dollar facility management decisions during the draw-down at the end of the Cold War. For Sandia National Laboratories, Jono spearheaded a centralized data management repository initiative for Sandia’s full-scale engineering test range, providing data management and reuse for a new central command and control center. This initiative included a state-of-the-art 3D stereo, immersive visualization center for viewing what really happens in nanosecond timeframes or high-energy environments that humans cannot otherwise directly experience.
In 2000 Jono began honing his business acumen as a software entrepreneur, founding or co-founding a series of start-ups. He currently mentors tech startups as an Executive-in-Residence a Denver-area incubator.
