Hi! Welcome to GraySpectrum.com. My name is Benjamin Gray. I am a web designer and an aspiring full-stack developer based in Atlanta, GA. You can reach me on my cell at 404.593.7827.

I am a generalist at heart, fascinated by all things business, but my primary interests lie in web development technologies. My career began in restaurants as a dishwasher some 20 years ago. While steadily growing within the industry, I went home each night and studied programming for the web. Eventually I got my break working for an award-winning brand design firm. I have continued learning about the web since and have no plans on quitting!
