Lifelong entrepreneur and "Renaissance Man" Steven L Smith is the CEO of Perdix Software.
Growing up during a time when computing and the internet were just finding its legs, he found great inspiration in technology, building his skills in tandem with the exponential growth of the web. Proving himself to be a driving force at all levels of business from marketing to software development, he has held a variety of positions that include significant technical and executive experience in both the non-profit and private sectors.
Mr. Smith holds a BA degree in Music with a minor in Technical Writing and Communication from Nazareth College, and is an alumnus of McQuaid Jesuit High School.
He spends what little spare time he has enjoying motorcycles, cars, cooking, travel, and discovering new technology.

Full-Stack Web Design and Development
I built these sites from "soup to nuts" using HTML/CSS, and server-side languages like Python and PHP.
Web Development: Nazareth College
While employed as the web developer at Nazareth College, I built numerous web sites and web applications. In addition to the main public-facing website, I built additional projects — like a chemical inventory system, password reset tool, online voting system, and point-of-sale system, to name a few. Many of these are still publically available, but a good portion are internal tools that require a current valid institutional login. If you'd like to see any of these, let me know.
Open Source Software
In 2014, I created the CSSbis Useful CSS Mini-Framework, a collection of reusable styles useful in creating web applications and sites. CSSbis is available on Github as BSD-licensed free software.
