Hi, I'm Jayson Rice

Full-stack software developer,
lover of technology and the outdoors

After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University in 2017 with a B.S. in Digital Media, I started my professional career at a digital marketing agency. After growing tired of marketing for the next year, I determined that software development was the right direction for me to move in.

I think being thoroughly familiar with digital media helps my skills as a developer. I respect good design and have a better understanding of what a user wants to see on their screen. I already loved solving problems in the digital space with creative solutions, and now I still can. I started my transition to software development at Nashville Software School in 2020 and haven't looked back since.
