Jon Clausen

President
Silo Web

Jon hails from Grand Rapids, Michigan and has been developing CFML applications since 2004. He was born and raised in South Dakota and attended SDSU and DePaul University. In 2004, after 14 years with a Fortune 100 company, he founded Silo, a full-stack development and technology consulting firm in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 

Jon has written and developed applications in CFML, Javascript, PHP, and Ruby in addition to dabbling in Java, Go, Python, Bash, Scala and Clojure. He keeps current with both old and new database technologies including SQL Server, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Couchbase, and - his personal NoSQL favorite - MongoDB.

After hours, Jon enjoys theatre, fishing for smallmouth bass on the Great Lakes, and chauffeuring his 12 year-old daughter back and forth to the horse stables.
