Craig Helton

.NET Developer, Vail Resorts

Denver

I grew up in Cincinnati and moved to Arvada 2 years ago. I have been writing software professionally for 4 years and also have several years of data analytics experience. With both of these skill sets, I enjoy using both to optimize web experiences for users and profits for organizations.

Originally starting college as a computer science major, I switched to finance because the debugging process was really bad for me. I did not want to pull out all of my hair looking for a missing semi-colon. Finance introduced me to data analytics and after a couple years, debugging got better and I started re-learning to code. I was able to convince my boss to let me work on the company website and my career as a developer had started. Throughout my Master’s program, I took all the advanced programming classes I could take further growing my love for coding.

In my free time, I enjoy snowboarding, live music and have won awards for playing the saxophone. Now, my only audience is my wife, 2 kids, and our dog.
