Web Developer

Jarrod Page

Jarrod is the lead developer at Caliber and quite frankly, he makes websites and digital properties work... somehow. We don't ask much more than that, since that's all that really matters. When Jarrod's not making magic happen on a screen, he's tinkering with his other passion - muscle cars. He's currently working on his Camaro collection and seeing if there isn't a way to squeeze a little more horsepower out of each of them.
