About

Stephen started working at Crema in 2010 as a graphic and web designer from his college dorm room. He's now the Senior Web Developer designing and coding everything from unique static content sites to eCommerce sites and insurance quoting systems.

Curiosity and determination drives him. He enjoys a challenge and likes to know how things tick. Stephen loves great design, but enjoys the analytics / design involved in programming.

Stephen graduated from Mississippi College in 2010 with a B.S. in graphic design. Over the past several years, he's sharpened his skills with HTML5, CSS3, LESS, JQuery, Liquid, PHP, and Twig. He even coded a bit in Visual Basic, C, and Flash back in the day.


Employee Q&A

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I was born in Jackson, MS and moved to Madison in the 3rd grade. I moved around Jackson for a bit after college — even had 5 roommates at one point and a band in my living room. Eventually, I settled down in Madison, MS. Don't have any pets, because I believe the best pet is the pet you can give back. I've got a younger brother and sister and my parents still live in Madison too.

How did you become interested in design?

I knew I was interested in computers and graphic design the moment my parents got an old Apple from the 80s with Alpine Tram Ride and Number Munchers. I few years later, we got an old Mac with Claris Works and A-10 Attack. I started dreaming of becoming either an architect or a video game designer.

I've always been interested in video games as well. I started out playing them, and then took a copy of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 apart and replaced the graphics for it. Designed and coded a few in Visual Basic in high school.

What's your best professional achievement?

This website. Also, I once built a duck hunting game with exploding ducks.

Give us two truths and a lie.

  1. I'm an avid fan of plaid.
  2. I've never built a computer.
  3. My favorite musical genre was once Jack Johnson.
