Caleb Zahnd is a technology guru and an endurance athlete. Disguised as technical solutions architect for the worldwide leader in travel marketing, he maintains a mostly mild-mannered existence in Northwest Missouri.
I am thirty-something years old, a son of the hills of Andrew County, Missouri. I am married to a beautiful pediatric ICU nurse, a woman who has selflessly worked to care for some of the sickest kids in the country. In 2010, a stork crash landed at our house, and brought us a beautiful baby boy. That kid fought a hard battle with cancer, and today he’s happy, healthy, and as active as any other kid! The stork revisited our home again in 2012, 2015, and 2018 before I figured out where all those birds were coming from. Our kids are fun and crazy and generally just make me feel happy.
I work with an amazing team of creative people as the technical solutions architect at MMGY Global in Kansas City, Missouri. I earn my keep by building beautiful and immersive web experiences and applications. I manage and oversee the Technical Solutions Team and the ideation, technical planning, and implementation of client technical solutions; everything from huge web sites to mobile apps, from chatbots to interactive kiosks at the airport. I love juggling multiple projects and tight deadlines and just living off that intensity and pressure. While tech related things permeate deep into my hobbies, there are many other things I enjoy. I am an ultra-endurance runner. Since 2013, I have completed 4 ultra-marathons and at least 9 road marathons. (I’ve lost count.) I’m continually trying to expand my repertoire of craft cocktails. I could touch the rim in high school.
At the end of the day though, I’m just a husband and a dad. And that’s really all I care to be remembered as.
