I grew up in the Saint Louis metro east area. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Computer Science. After the Saint Louis Rams left for Los Angeles, I got really interested in economics impact analysis. I created a company, Dynammek, to help build communities and businesses. Dynammek will develop an economic impact scores that will more precisely quantify the actual money a business generates in a community. The hope is with this information people and businesses will support those businesses that are truly beneficial to them.
