Grayson is an experienced software developer with a background in working with all types of software. He loves tinkering with Javascript, React.js, Node.js, and is excited to start his journey with Drupal!

He spent five years in finance/banking in a sales and management role, but had a nagging feeling it wasn't what he meant to be doing. With a love of making websites, that began at age 14, he decided to take his career path in a different direction and devote his time to coding. After a journey through The Iron Yard code academy, he became a full-stack web developer for VirtualJobShadow.com. He built full features on a Javascript, Slim PHP, T-SQL stack. 

During this time his favorite project he worked on was Virtualjobshadow.com. This project was a career exploration platform for K-12 students, as well and college and workforce development. He was the seventh employee on board and enjoyed being along as it grew to over 20. It served up amazing video and informational content for hundreds of thousands of users. Grayson said he is very proud of my work there and of the team still running it.

Grayson has a 'to-learn' list as long as his arm and doesn't think he has met a programming language he didn't enjoy. Next on his list? Perfecting Drupal! When Grayson isn’t spending his time learning, he love spending time outside in his garden in the mountains with my wife, Gaby and their five children.
