HUNTER JENSEN

After running Barefoot Solutions for several years, I have worn many hats. At some point in my company's history I have played the role of consultant, project manager, programmer, designer, lawyer, accountant, and janitor. I love new and exciting ideas. I like pushing the envelope with technology. I'm interested in securing more contracts for my company, building the portfolio of sites that my company owns, and partnering with other entrepreneurs on their ventures.
