About Me.

Hi! My name is Todd Clarkston and I’m a(n) UI API DB Developer.
I am a 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. It is here that my development talent was recognized, leading me to be hired in a developer position. This position is where I found my first love of programming: .Net. My experience with the very first version would blossom into a lifelong commitment and a slew of senior and consultant roles at many large companies, including many Fortune 500s. Now with over 20 years of web development experience, I provide my expertise to my clients from my company, WireServers.
