justin’s growth path

For Justin, it all started it middle school when his librarian introduced his class to the internet. He immediately wanted to know who made those web pages, and was shocked to find out that anyone could do it. The thought of creating something the world could immediately see inspired him. That summer, he spent most of his time learning HTML basics and the ins-and-outs of AngelFire’s web site builder.

Justin was convinced that web design was what he wanted to do with his career. He spent time at the Ohio State University studying Java and C++ in their Computer Science program. Discovering a unique Interactive Media program at Columbus State, he transferred and joined the program where he earned his Associate’s degree.

Justin’s professional career began with creating websites for political campaigns, teaching him the importance of working quickly, within deadline, and without error—a crucial factor in his daily work at Adept. He then spent time as a web designer at both a small business and large agency before joining the Adept team in 2012.

in his downtime

With a new addition to the family in November 2016, the majority of Justin’s time outside of Adept is spent with his son. Ideally, he spends winter months on the snow and summer months on the water, pretending he’s a woodworker, and annoying his wife with stupid jokes in the interim.
