Hi! My name is Tim Bornholdt. I'm an entrepreneur, software developer, videographer and marathoner based in Minneapolis, MN. I am a partner at The Jed Mahonis Group, a mobile app development company specializing in building iOS and Android apps for businesses. 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 5 years with my company, 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 Vision Systems Intelligence (a research firm specializing in automotive vision systems) and Mimi (an app to help parents coordinate schedules with their babysitters).
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 ultramarathon (the 50 mile Surf the Murph race in Savage, MN), and I don't have any plans for my next race quite yet. My personal favorite brews at the moment are BlackStack Brewing's Ratify!, Badger Hill's HEXIT, and Surly's Thanks Obama. Three years ago, I married the most beautiful woman in the world, and we welcomed our daughter Charlee into the world nearly 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.
