Steve started his career after college as a rodman on a 3-man survey crew and is now a licensed land surveyor in Iowa. His 20+ years experience in Surveying, GIS, IT, and Photogrammetry led him to start using drones in 2011. He co-founded his first drone company in 2014 to provide mapping services with drones. He flew over 2,000 mapping missions for clients using drones for surveying. Currently, he is the CEO and founder of Whirrx; which provides a turn-key system to surveyors so they can use drones as a tool for surveying, even when vertical accuracy of 0.05ft is required on road projects.
