My first job out of college was at a small company in Indianapolis named Arete Software. At Arete, I was able to grow into the developer that I felt I should be by learning new frameworks, new languages, and putting my skills to the test.

My first project was a project for a filter cleaning company based off of a product that we had been using as a “template.” The “template” was a project that was created for another large company in Indianapolis that was using some software from Arete. That project had several security holes in it, a pretty terrible user interface, and less than satisfying user experience.
