Hi, my name is Thomas Mazer. I grew up in Ohio, right outside of the Cleveland area. As a kid, I was deeply moved by art and design and one of my favorite things to do was visit the Cleveland Museum of Art.
After graduating high school, I received an academic scholarship to The Ohio State University where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Media Arts and Computer Science with honors. While attending The Ohio State University I fell in love with the art of designing websites. It was at this point in my life that I realized, web design is all I wanted to do. I have a deep passion and love for it.
Since graduating, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with some amazing companies. I started my career off with Microsoft as a Software Development Engineer working on several amazing projects. After working at Microsoft for 2 years I met the love of my life and my wife, Amy. After working another year at Microsoft, I took an offer to work at IBM as a software designer. I worked for IBM for a little over 3 years, working on some challenging and fun projects.
Though I loved working for Microsoft and IBM, I was still very passionate about web design. After talking with my wife about my passion, she encouraged me to speak with her brother who was friends with the owner of LUCID. After reaching out to Matthew and expressing my passion, he offered me a position with LUCID in which I could fulfill my desire to build high-quality websites.
I can truly say working for LUCID has been a dream come true. It has not only helped me to grow as a designer and developer, it has also helped me to grow in my understanding of business and as a person. Now I spend my days doing what I absolutely love and there is no better place than LUCID to do it.
