Meet Our Team
Co-Founder / President / Project Director
Kai was born and raised in Colorado before moving to Moab, Utah. He is the Co-Founder, President, and Project Director at Canyonlands Computers. In addition to overseeing the company’s various projects, Kai is responsible for providing customer support and performing service calls for all our clients.
Kai started working with computers shortly after he began to walk. His first introduction came when his parents bought an Apple II. Not long after that, he and his friends began taking apart, upgrading, and tweaking their Commodore 64s, and Nintendo gaming systems. He hasn’t looked back since.
After completing his master’s degree, Kai had a short stint as a Social Studies teacher before coming to work full time in the IT industry in 2004. Since then he has worked as a Web Developer, Computer Technician, IT Support Specialist, and Network Administrator for several companies.
When not sitting in front of a computer, you will find Kai hiking, mountain biking, and climbing America’s highest peaks.
Co-Founder / Vice-President / Business Director
Jen has worked in an office management capacity for a variety of companies and non-profits over the past 15 years. She brings this experience to help keep the books balanced and paperwork straight in her role as Co-Founder, Vice-President, and Business Director at Canyonlands Computers.
Jen’s introduction to computers took place in 1983, when her grade school class began working with the Logo Programming Language. Her family purchased a Commodore 64 a year later, and she still recalls how excited she and her brother were to upgrade to a 5” floppy disc drive from their original cassette tape system.
With a degree in education, and continuing studies in graphic design, Jen continues to rely on both Mac and PC computers in her professional life. When she’s not crunching numbers, you’ll find Jen hiking, running, reading, cooking and spending time with her husband and animal friends.
Originally from Massachusetts, Jen is happy to be turning into a desert rat and thrilled to call Moab home.
