Hi! My name is Tim Bornholdt. I'm an entrepreneur, software developer, videographer and marathoner based in Minneapolis, MN. I am a co-founder of The Jed Mahonis Group, a mobile app development company specializing in building awesome iOS and Android apps for businesses. I also film and edit C Tolle Run, a weekly online show about running and fitness hosted by Olympian Carrie Tollefson.
I built my first website in first grade. It was an awesome Geocities 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.
Since then, I've graduated from the Univesity of Minnesota 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 5 years in my capacity as Chief Technology Officer of 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've also co-founded several other Twin Cities-based companies, including CityCenter (a company dedicated to building smartphone apps for small towns) and Vision Systems Intelligence (a research firm specializing in automotive vision systems).
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.
When I'm not programming or filming, I can typically be found out on the road training for a race. Right now, I'm training for my first ultramarathon next year: the Surf the Murph 50 miler. I'm also really into craft beer. My personal favorites at the moment are Tin Whiskers' Funkenfest and Surly's Todd the Axe Man. Two years ago, I married the most beautiful woman in the world, and we just welcomed our daughter Charlee into the world last July. You can usually find the three of us sitting in our living room trying to get Charlee to laugh (which, frankly, isn't that difficult).
