Stuart Gripman

Bio

Stuart Gripman is a native of Akron, Ohio who grew up in suburban Orange County, California before migrating to San Francisco to get out of the sun. After a two-year stint at FileMaker Inc. he went on to possess the ephemeral title of Webmaster at StarNine Technologies. In 2000, Stuart founded Crooked Arm Consulting to provide custom FileMaker databases for a wide variety of clientele. Crooked Arm's databases have since benefitted the U.S. space program, fine art patrons, system administrators, digital projection cinemas, vintners, oenophiles, aspiring mixologists, data recovery practitioners, architects, commercial artists, and a Grammy award-winning ensemble.

Stuart has some difficulty remembering times when he wasn't working. Eyewitness accounts of these so-called "weekends" indicate that he's enjoyed spending time with his wife and their son, hiking, cycling, listening to loud music and playing Legos. And baking cookies whenever possible. Got a good chewy snickerdoodle recipe? Do share!
