Adrian Price


I have been writing software for over twenty years – my third grade science project was a file manager for the Apple II series. Since then I've learned more languages than I can count, and done everything from back-end to front-end, from graphic design to server administration, from project management to end-user support.

I am a code poet, a software craftsman with a passion for development. I aim to find the simplest, most elegant practical solution to a problem; of course, there are times when deadlines loom and corners must be cut, and from these situations I've honed my skills in rapid development and refactoring.

I have a lot of experience in web development and digital marketing, while maintaining a broad knowledge of the technology space in general. I love learning about and trying new technologies, for programming or otherwise. I love skunkworks and greenfield projects, game design, system architecture, and any opportunity to learn.
