Hello! 👋 I'm Jonathan Pichot.

I'm an urbanist, technologist, and endlessly curious person.

I've spent much of my career helping governments build better software, often for cities. I've been a full stack developer, product manager, and public sector entrepreneur. Previously, I've worked for NYC Planning Labs, Downtown Grand Rapids Inc, and a number of agencies. I've taught GIS at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and introductory javascript at the Factory in Grand Rapids. I occasionally speak about my work at conferences and events.

I care deeply about cities and communities. I've founded and run volunteer groups, I've been a neighborhood block captain, I've studied cities through data. I consider myself a local of Paris 🇫🇷 and Grand Rapids 🇺🇸.
