Those of you who know me – know that I love my papa. He started his web development company in 1997 and taught me how to code. I built my first few websites with him looking over my shoulder. In 2012 when I asked him to partner with me to start WebTegrity – his response was – “We ain’t done it yet?” That meant that he loved the idea and we went to work getting it done. He’s built most of our furniture for our offices over the years and helped created some of the crazy ideas in my head. We love boating together and playing the guitars together too.
