An East Grand Rapids native, AJ began teaching himself to code in middle school by messing around with the rudimentary language of graphing calculators, i.e. TI-BASIC. A bit of a rebel, AJ was less concerned with following all the rules and more interested in learning about things that truly interested him, like coding and physics. He began teaching himself other languages while finishing high school, completing a degree in Business at Calvin College, and working his post-collegiate jobs. His love for development only continued to grow.
His learning never stops and we’re excited to fuel his curiosity and foster his clear passion for bringing better software into the world.
