About Us
The people behind our software...
Xeric Design is a developer of cutting edge applications for Mac OS X, iOS and Windows. We are based in Incline Village, Nevada, on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, at 6,350 feet above sea level.

Trygve Inda, founder and developer, has been writing Mac software since 1989. He wrote Time Palette on a Mac IIcx in 1992. EarthDesk was born in 2002 and took the world by storm, allowing Trygve and his wife, Karen, to quit their day jobs. Xeric Design incorporated in 2004.

Trygve has degrees in International Affairs and Geography and is passionate about maps, travel, and airplanes. In 2013, he earned his Private Pilot Certificate and is now the proud owner of a Piper Dakota.

Karen processes sales and answers tech support. She has a degree in Geography, a sharp eye for detail, and an equally strong passion for travel. She is working on her Private Pilot Certificate.

Together, they have traveled to nearly 90 countries and take their software business with them on a MacBook Air wherever they go, from Albania to Zimbabwe. Their dedication to Xeric Design is matched only by their insatiable thirst for adventure.
