Brian Kolstad

Brian has been with wisnet.com since the beginning, when he’d develop applications in his free time while working toward a Masters of Science degree in Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Since returning to Fond du Lac, Brian has continued to push the capabilities of the traditional website by creating new features and functionality on both the front-end and back-end. Integrating the latest concepts in user interface design and advanced document management is all in a day’s work.

In addition to the Geek side of wisnet.com, Brian can also be seen on the Creative side providing photography and video services.

Brian and his wife, Mel, are active members of the community, serving on several non-profit boards and volunteering their time and talents to promote the arts, education, local business, and Fond du Lac in general.
