Cory Trimm

10+ Years Experience. Fractional CTO, Avid Builder, & Lifelong Learner.

Hey there - I'm Cory – a software engineering leader with over a decade's worth of professional experience. From rolling up my sleeves and coding cool stuff at startups to longer-term engineering strategy / people management in the government, my journey has been quite the ride.


Beyond my day jobs, I've always delved into side projects as a way to keep up my skills and for fun. With over 50 ventures, from quirky web apps to online stores, these experiments have become a lab for tinkering, learning, and sharing the fun of creation.


When I'm not at the computer, I'm often enjoying the outdoors on local trails or exploring new parts of town.
