About the owners Gary & Amy Arndt
I grew up in a family business, Arndt’s Brillion Meats, est. 1929, by my grandfather Otto who passed the business onto my father Clayton. My first experience with a computer was in 1981 with a TRS 80 and Apple II. I taught myself the Basic Programming language from the books that came with the computer. I remember backing up my code to a cassette tape deck and my monitor was a 12″ TV. In the early 90’s when America Online Line (AOL) offered internet access, I taught myself how to build/code a website from tutorials I had found online and the graphic design part just came natural to me with graphic design products from Adobe like Photoshop, Illustrator and Page Mill.
After high school I attended Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton for marketing & computer programming. My interests in computers & artistic design kept growing and so did my knowledge. I became licensed in Wisconsin to sell real estate which led me to my first commercial websites in the middle 1990’s for the real estate firm Wisconsin Land Company. They had 3 offices through out the state and wanted a website for each one. I also started shooting 360 degree virtual tours and in those early days I had to use a special tripod to help take 16 level shots to produce / stitch together one panorama photo. It took days to edit & create a virtual tour and boy how technology has changed for the better to streamline this process. My current virtual tour camera can shoot a complete hi-resolution 360 in less then 30 seconds and auto stitch the photos making lite work for us in the editing room and bringing the costs of virtual tours way down.
