I am passionate about cake, entrepreneurship, leadership, and my family. I live in Minneapolis with my wife and son.
I was born in July 1980. My home town is Minneapolis where I currently live with my wife and son. After God and my family what I love most is helping people reach their full potential. I do this through my love of business, math, statistics, history, and logic. You might see me on the street, you will know its me because I will be wearing mostly black. Please stop me and tell me something about yourself.
My name is Thompson Temilade Aderinkomi born in 1980 in the city of Macomb IL but I was raised in Minneapolis where I still live with my wife and son. After graduating from highschool I thought the smart thing to do was to get as much education as I could. Consequently I attended the University of Minnesota and completed a Bachelor’s in Economics and Statistics, a Master’s in Statistics and an MBA from the Carlson School of Management.
My career has been spent entirely in the healthcare industry building economic models, leading business intelligence projects, and developing data warehouses at places like UnitedHealth Group, Medica Health Plans, and UCare MN. Despite doing so much boring stuff, I have always found time to play bass in bands and continue to work on my book. I have been working full time on healthcare startups since 2010. My first two did not take off as planned, I am working on my third – RetraceHealth. Currently, I serve on the board of directors for MNsure, Youthprise, and WATCH MN.
I wear a lot of black, because it is easy, and I just like the way it looks. My favorite kind of food is Chinese, particularly the chicken covered in any sweet and spicy sauce. I know way more about The Lord of the Rings than a person should with plenty of Star Trek Next Generation on the side. But I am also a hobby student of ancient history, Herodotus The Histories is one of my favorite books. There is more, but I think reading the blog will be more interesting.
