My name is Casey Forbes and I have 8 years of experience building websites. I have lived on the Outer Banks most of my life, except my college years at N.C. State and a short adventure in the Florida Keys. I spend my free time with my family and playing in local tennis leagues.
My journey as a web designer started in 2010 when I moved back to the Outer Banks to be with my terminally ill father. He was a programmer for the department of defense before moving to the Outer Banks and starting his own online medical business. Sadly, he passed away in 2011, which led me to accept his responsibilities at CarePathways.com. Instead of completing my masters in school counseling as planned, I found myself studying Computer Science and learning HTML, CSS, SQL, and programming.
My involvement with CarePathways taught me valuable lessons. Because I was thrown into web design / development without a formal education, I was forced to learn by doing. I experienced many successes, and on the contrary, the sting of making costly errors. I also learned from my relationships with CEO's of big online brands, medical supply distributors, and many web experts along the way. I even took classes in Computer Science to supplement my expertise, but nothing compares to real life experience! In the end, I am grateful for these lessons because they gave me the knowledge and skills to open Big Fish Web Design.
