About Me.

Hi! My name is Todd Clarkston and I’m a(n) UI API DB Developer.
I am a seasoned veteran of the online landscape, with the battle scars to prove it. Initially interested in aerospace engineering, I decided to postpone my higher education for a time to try my hand at building a website for the family business, an opportunity that would instantly highlight my undiscovered knack. Buoyed by the success, I spent several years as a freelance web developer before the dot com bust would prompt me to change both my address and my full-time employment status, moving to Utah to work in tech support for Alorica. But it wasn't until I later landed another tech support job at Teleperformance USA that my development talent would truly be recognized, leading me to be hired in a developer position. It was here I would find my true programming love in life: .Net. My experience with the very first version would blossom into a lifelong commitment and a slew of senior and consultant roles at the likes of Certiport, JP Morgan Chase, SPIREMEDIA, eBags, Visa, and the Federal Reserve. Now with over 20 years of web development experience, I provide my expertise to my clients from my company, WireServers
