Joseph LoPreste Co-Owner and Chief Accessibility Officer:
Hi, I’m Joe LoPreste, I’m from St. Pete Fl. and I bring over 12 years of business and technology experience to the team. Through St. Pete Design I have the opportunity to combine my passion for web accessibility and my obsession with pushing technology beyond its limits.
“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
This is how I feel about software development. I get to wake up every day to a new set of challenges and the opportunity to solve these challenges with unique solutions. One of my favorite things in business is the feeling of satisfaction that I get when we are able to successfully create or do something that others said could not be done.
I have 2 amazing daughters Mekenzie and Kennedie who have taught me what’s important in life. They bring balance to me and my life/work ratio. I bring the mindset that as a company we should cultivate creativity and individuality so that allows us to create solutions at the highest levels while still loving what we do.
I believe that I can help the disabled community by creating free accessibility software explaining and teaching how easy web accessibility actually is to implement for developers, designers, and agencies. The people who build and maintain over 1/3 of the internet.
Here are some examples of the projects and talks that I have been fortunate enough to be a part of:
