Jon Voss
Founder, LookBackMaps

Website | @lookbackmaps

Jon Voss is founder of LookBackMaps, an innovative public history project that is one of many new initiatives in the field of historical and cultural heritage. He also runs jumpSLIDE networks, a small IT consultancy in San Francisco. Voss has been managing IT projects for non-profits and small to medium businesses in the Bay Area for over ten years. His work on mapping historical photos stems from a love of history and a chance run-in with a band of privy diggers who excavated his back yard in SF’s Mission district several years ago.
