Hi! My name is Tim Bornholdt. I'm an entrepreneur, software developer, videographer and marathoner based in Minneapolis, MN. I am a co-founder and partner at The Jed Mahonis Group, a mobile app development consultancy specializing in building on-demand iOS and Android apps for businesses and entrepreneurs. I also record and edit C Tolle Run, a weekly podcast about running and fitness hosted by Olympian Carrie Tollefson.
I built my first website in first grade. It was an awesome Angelfire page called "Tim's World" which featured frames, scrolling marquees and a looping MIDI of the Coca-Cola jingle in the background. While in middle school, I improved my skills and built the web's most popular Ralph Wiggum website called That's Unpossible.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2010 with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Computer Science. I've been building native iOS and Ruby on Rails apps for the past 6 years with The Jed Mahonis Group. We've built apps for companies as large as Great Clips and as small as... well, ourselves.
In addition to the Jed Mahonis Group, I have also been on the ground floor of several other Twin Cities-based companies, including Vision Systems Intelligence (a research firm specializing in autonomous vehicle technologies), Mimi (an app to help parents coordinate schedules with their babysitters), and Kwikly (an on-demand dental staffing agency).
I also am an award-winning videographer and editor. I've worked on videos of all shapes and sizes for organizations such as Pepsi, the Minnesota Wild, the National Academy of Television, and the Metropolitan Council. I've been fortunate to have my work on Fox Business Channel, CNBC, Bloomberg International, Fox Sports North and WCCO-TV.
If I'm not writing code or editing video, you will probably either catch me running, enjoying a craft beer, or hanging out with my family. I recently completed my first ultra marathon (the 50 mile Surf the Murph race in Savage, MN). This spring, my wife and I will be running the Get in Gear half marathon, which runs around the beautiful River Road in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
I love craft beer, and I love Minnesota's craft beer scene. My personal favorite brews at the moment are BlackStack Brewing's Ratify!, Barrel Theory's Assistant Regional Manager, and Lift Bridge's Peaks & Prairies. I just launched an app with the JMG which helps you track every single brewery in the state called mncraft.beer.
Three years ago, I married the most beautiful woman in the world, and we welcomed our daughter Charlee into the world a year and a half ago. You can usually find the three of us sitting in our living room watching Charlee try to jump and coaxing you into reading her the same book for the sixth time in a row.
