Jay Foreman

J. Foreman

Lead Cartographer and President

Jay Foreman, a native of New York, received his undergraduate degree from the University of Massachusetts in 1994 and his Masters in Geography/Geographic Information Systems in 2000 from the University of Oklahoma. Jay has been producing print, web-ready and interactive maps his entire adult life, and has unsurpassed knowledge of the North American geographic and demographic landscape.

Jay’s first professional position as an independent contractor began in 2000 when he was hired by the San Francisco-based e-commerce site to create and manage all GIS data and maps published on their web site. In 2002, Jay became the GIS Coordinator for a Bay Area seismic/geohazards firm of earth science consultants, where he built their GIS services from the ground up. Some of his GIS projects included geologic mapping, geohazard site assessment, seismic monitoring and spatial analysis. As GIS Coordinator, Jay mapped seismic hazards for state and federal agencies, as well as private industries.

Capitalizing on an immediate opportunity to produce maps on a much larger scale for the real estate industry, Jay founded Red Paw Technologies in 2003. By pooling the talents of former colleagues from the University of Oklahoma as well as other talented and creative individuals, Red Paw Technologies is now in its 22nd year and continues to produce the highest quality map products available.

Jay Foreman lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and three cats. Jay is an avid hiker, skier, weight trainer and pet lover who enjoys the precious few moments of the day when he’s unplugged from technology.
