Troy Compton

Software Architect

I have always enjoyed problem solving and puzzles, so computer technology and software had my interest early on. I started my professional career as a Visual Basic programmer in the early 90’s and went on to C++, Java and C#. I love to write code and experiment with new technologies. My current responsibilities are software development and architecture which allows me the opportunity to do both.
