About Steve Stringer

While we can bring together a group of talented individuals to meet the needs of any size project, Stringer Sites is run primarily by Steve Stringer. Get to know the man behind the sites.

Steve Stringer

Principal Developer, Owner

Stringer Sites is run by Steve Stringer, an Adobe Certified Expert and a 20-year veteran of the software industry. With a unique background that blends fine arts, software engineering, and business, Steve is able to tackle almost any type of project with experience and skill.

After receiving his BA from Tulane University in New Orleans, Steve moved to the powdered slopes of Park City, Utah, where he received his MBA from the University of Utah. While at the UofU, Steve started his career in software development in 1994 by working at Unisys creating custom executive reporting systems. After graduation, Steve moved to Los Angeles to work for Activision producing video games internally and through Business Development. During a career that took him from Activision to Electronic Arts to Atari, Steve produced dozens of projects and was privileged to work with some of the finest creative talent in the gaming industry.

In 2004, Steve took his experience in project management and business development and his passion for web development to start Stringer Sites. 10 years and dozens of projects later, Stringer Sites has grown in capacity and expertise. In recent years, Steve has specialized in developing custom back-end systems that support entire businesses.

Unexpectedly, Steve discovered a passion for cartography and GIS application development as an R&D offshoot of another project. In 2010, Steve launched MapTechnica.com, offering a variety of data products to support GIS application development and custom map creation services for customers around the world.

When he's not developing software or creating maps, Steve is active in the web development community promoting web standards and best practices through conference lectures and participation in community forums and advisory councils. He also occasionally teaches video game production and project management as an adjunct professor at Southern Methodist University's Guildhall.
