Born in RI in 1971, Keith Nordstrom attended Tollgate high school and Bates college in Lewiston, ME, where he received a BS degree in Mathematics and Physics. In 1993 he moved to Boulder, Colorado in order to work on his PhD in Physics, which he completed in late 2001. He continued in the field through July of 2005, but funding for his work dried up and he was forced to find work quickly. Since his dissertation was computer intensive, software development was a logical choice. Within a few days Keith was working on custom software with Sourceflow LLC, a position for which he was eminently unqualified - fortunately he was able to learn quickly.
In 2006, Keith began racing road bikes and joined the GS Boulder Cycling Club in hopes of finding mentorship. However, GS Boulder had fallen on rough times and he soon found himself elected president of what remained of the club. With a great deal of assistance from a ragtag band of like-minded members, Keith was able to resurrect the club, and in the process put together a suite of software tools to help run GSB. When he stepped down as president at the end of 2008, these tools formed the basis for the MadSync TeamOS project, a business Keith and Alan Enos launched together in January 2009.
On the basis of his work with MadSync, Keith was hired for the ACA Webmaster position in the spring of 2009. He is currently employed full time by GameStamper.com, a startup in Los Angeles.
In addition to cycling and physics research, Keith has many side interests. High on this list is music performance, with which he was at points involved at a semi-professional level, but is now limited primarily to posting videos on YouTube.
