My passion for web design took root in 1999 when I sought to establish an online presence for my photography business. This sparked a fascination with coding and design, leading me to delve deeper into the subject and hone my skills through custom web development for small businesses in the East Bay region. My expertise further grew with a UI/UX design certification from General Assembly in San Francisco. Throughout my career, I've tackled a diverse range of projects, from international e-commerce platforms to community nonprofit sites, and even served as Chief Product Officer in a tech startup. With each project, I relish the opportunity to bring websites to life or give them a modern makeover.
