Our team has made a commitment to not do business “as usual”.





Wicked Code was designed with the idea of creating solutions that integrate with brand identity, with dedication that results in shipping product, and with the goal of building sites that marry creativity and technology seamlessly.
Since our founding in 1997, our company has made this a commitment to our clients, and it’s one we are proud of upholding.
A few words from the founder:

I am lucky that I was born into a family of early technology adopters. My father started programming classes at Western Airlines two days after I was born, so I’m a second generation programmer.  In the mid-1970’s, my father bought a computer kit and built the first computer we had at home.

“I didn’t know much about how to use this computer, but I was intrigued by it, especially the fact that you could type in a command to play a sound from one music pitch to another. I learned how to make the computer play a police car siren, and that was a whole lot of fun for an 8 year old.

In 1989, I graduated with a music degree and no idea how I was going to make money. So, I went back to a local state college to pursue my computer science degree. It was around that time that I had discovered one of the first versions of Microsoft Windows…”
