Jon, an aeronautical engineer in a prior life, founded Backcountry Containers in February 2016. Designing unique and simple solutions to complex problems has always been one of his strongest attributes. Like most engineers, he has always enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back together. Jon uses his engineering background to design and develop unique, functional, and structurally sound custom container builds. His custom builds have been featured on networks such as HGTV and DIY. Jon and his wife Kristen were featured on their own DIY Network TV show ‘Containables’, which was centered around Backcountry Containers. Jon holds a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace, Aeronautical Engineering from Purdue University.
