Before becoming a Developer, Lanny’s career path steered him to a degree in band directing. While studying for that degree, he spent lots of time teaching himself web development in his dorm room, which he later realized he was more suited for so he transitioned into web development. His first development job was in 2009 at a small shop with a custom table-based CMS, where he tried to do as much front-end work as he could in between client support phone calls and training sessions. In the three jobs since then, he spent most of his time building Drupal sites, getting steadily more competent and confident in his ability to contribute to higher-profile work.
Outside of Mediacurrent, Lanny enjoys playing video games and is a self-proclaimed “inveterate Mario, Zelda, and Myst nerd.” Fun fact: Lanny took his first trip on an airplane coming into the Mediacurrent HQ for orientation!
