Nate joined EarthOptics because of his interest in agriculture, cartography, and the growing application of technology within these disciplines. EarthOptics is a perfect mix of both. Nate also joined EarthOptics to be able to work outside! Nate has previously worked in the childcare, food service, retail, and warehousing industries. Each of these experiences was unique and helped develop his skills and traits as an employee and a person.
Nate is from Ellsworth, Wisconsin, a small town about 15 miles from the Wisconsin and Minnesota border and 45 miles from the Twin Cities metro area. Growing up in rural Wisconsin his hobbies and interests largely revolved around the outdoors including hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking. He has always preferred to spend his free time doing these activities, especially with family and friends. Nate's interest in technology developed when he went to college as he began to learn how technology affects his hobbies and interests.
