Over the past 28 years, Klatt’s career has spanned the growth of the commercial internet. As a computer science and physics major at Western Washington University, he served as the university’s first webmaster.

This culminated in Klatt co-founding a web-consulting firm in the ‘90s. He then shifted to designing scalable social-networking services and casual online social gaming. Most recently, Klatt has focused his expertise on executing ambitious strategic roadmaps while navigating the complexities of data security, privacy and governance concerns of strategic educational technology partners.
