In 1996 TMA Founder and President Gary Stripling started designing and building websites for his then-employer, Northrop Grumman Aerospace (St. Augustine).
Back then website designers were using either Microsoft FrontPage or the new kid on the block, Macromedia Dreamweaver (now an Adobe product). Seeing his potential and desire to learn, Gary’s management team invested in sending him to a week-long Dreamweaver training conference in Milwaukee. He returned to Florida with a briefcase of training books, study materials, and unlocked creativity.
Gary designed the local website for the Environmental, Safety, Health & Medical department at Northrop Grumman and his efforts garnered him corporate-wide acclaim. He was subsequently asked to design other websites for NG corporate entities around the nation.
