Byron Dunn

Veteran Colorado lineman Byron Dunn spent most of his career forking for the municipal utility in Longmont, CO.  In 1997 Byron started powerlineman.com.  This was a website “Built By Lineman, For Lineman,” where they could network, learn from one another, find jobs, post pictures and stories, find vendors for tools and supplies, and much more.  In 2001, Dunn began work on a quarterly magazine with the same purpose in mind.  The inaugural issue in 2002 focused on the restoration of the electrical infrastructure in lower Manhattan following the 9/11 attack.  Byron Dunn has spent the intervening years traveling the country to attend events, visit worksites, meet with organizations, and listen to the stories from the frontlines of the lineman trade in order to give them a voice in Powerlineman magazine and on powerlineman.com.
