BIO

As a front-end web designer and developer, I approach my work with a passion for creating intuitive, engaging eCommerce websites to help clients achieve their business goals. Over the past three and a half years, I've worked solo and with teams to design and build websites and custom Shopify, WordPress, Lightspeed, and Squarespace themes/templates.

Currently, I'm looking for an agency or in-house front-end designer/developer position to learn from, share ideas with, and collaborate alongside a diverse team.

Weird challenge?! Heck yeah, I'm in! When faced with unique problems, I enthusiastically show up with a collaborative mindset and varied experience (oh yeah, and technical skills) to develop specialized solutions. I'm always eager to learn something new and build on my skills.

My path to becoming a designer/developer was a bit winding (and a little later in life), but it helped form a unique perspective and to approach problems with curiosity, empathy, and optimism.
