Hi, I’m Jon Engelsman

Jon Engelsman

I gather information to help people make well-informed & strategic decisions in both technology and business. With an engineering experience in the renewable energy, telecommunications and aerospace industries, I navigate complex technical systems and messes of information to identify problems, develop solutions and communicate the important nuances of both.

This website is about my love for diving into things - big things, messy things, complex things - and connecting the dots to reveal something interesting and useful. Exploring the hardware, history and hopes of new satellite constellations; unearthing meaningful moments in military history for friends and family in old newspapers and at the National Archives; reverse engineering the data services behind Netflix’s interactive media or Google’s machine learning games; and even just putting together a consumer survey of women’s winter parkas to help friends find warm coats.

In a small way, this website is my own attempt at curbing the entropy of information.


I’m currently developing geospatial data architecture and tools at AT&T Research Labs focused on broadband investments in rural areas.
