About.

INSPIRED BY TECHNOLOGY.

My mission is to leave a positive impact on the world through technological innovation and by helping others grow.

When I was little, I dreamed of becoming a marine biologist or a pizza deliveryman. Why? Because they seemed like the most amazing jobs to a young child. However, those dreams quickly gave way as I continued along in my academic career and learned more and more about two distinct yet interlocking worlds: business and computer science.

Learning to program in HTML using Microsoft Frontpage at age 10, I quickly became mesmerized by the capability of programmers to make anything happen on the computer screen. Whether it be something as basic as a calculator or as complicated as an algorithm for the encryption of government data, I was hooked. Over the next decade I continued to take Computer Science affiliated courses in both high school and college, learning languages such as CSS, JavaScript, Java, and Python as I went along. During this time, I also began to become interested in entrepreneurial and leadership oriented activities such as public speaking, business development, and project management.

Eventually, all of these interests collided in 2012 when I began my own freelance company called Daniel Ruthman Designs, which focused on designing websites and digital graphics for local businesses. Followed by a variety of other startup involvements including industries such as entertainment, game development, and education, I am left in the extraordinary position I am today. A position of constant learning, constant growth, and constant change.
