Don fell in love with computer programming in grade 10 when he took a coding class in high school. He knew, without a question, that he wanted to be a developer.

He went on to get his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Dayton, in Ohio. After which he worked for many years in the healthcare software space, as a developer, team lead, manager and IT administrator.

Here at Big Fish, Don is a Software Architect and Developer. He plans and designs our clients’ software systems, makes important choices related to the technical standards and platforms we use and develops our backend APIs and web services. Like many developers, he loves to solve complex problems and design solutions.

Don now lives in sunny Tampa, where most of his free time is spent staying active. He can often be found on his bike, in a rock climbing gym or paddling his stand up paddle board on the many waterways in and around the Tampa Bay area.
