TJ Szewczak

Senior Developer

Pick any aspect of TJ's colorful personality and you'll soon find an enigma. Sure, he was on the track team, but he also lettered in golf. At age 16 he was playing rhythm guitar in a band, but it was a Big Band playing Glen Miller tunes for cruise ships. Dig into his resume and you'll find his passion for code driven by a love for history and writing, not math and science. You see, enigmas and writing code are the same: a type of riddle expressed in allegorical language. It takes ingenuity and careful thinking to find solutions. This is what keeps TJ glued to his computer, where he writes code like elegant prose: enormously practical, yet poetic in its simplicity. Go figure!
