On leaving the service, Cutter became part-owner of a growing Advertising Specialty company, developing business automation processes for the company by writing MS Office-based applications. From there, Cutter went on to become a Customer Support Technician with a local Internet Service Provider. Upon showing programming aptitude, he was later moved into their Corporate Support department, providing maintenance and rewrites to existing websites and applications. It was here that Cutter began to really dive into web application programming, teaching himself JavaScript, CSS, and ColdFusion programming.
