INSPIRED BY DIFFERENCE.

Jed Forrest is fueled by his passion for understanding the nuances of systems. He considers himself a ‘forever student,’ eager to both build on his academic foundations in engineering and science and stay in tune with the latest digital technology strategies through continued coursework and professional development..

Jed is a project manager, with experience managing multiple teams and million-dollar portfolios. His background in engineering, programming, and management inform his mindful but competitive approach..

His hunger for knowledge and determination to turn information into action has contributed to his most recent success at a large Telco. There, he led national communications companies such as LTS, AFL, and Telecon.

Meanwhile, he vastly improved the productivity of his department by implementing strategic project management methods. Jed believes mindfulness in the workplace is key to success, a tenet he lives out through his interests in yoga, rock climbing, hiking, and gardening.

Jed is currently working as a freelance programmer/technologist and is always interested in a challenge.
