Born, raised, and currently residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a web design and development lifer: I bought a first-gen iPod with my first Cafepress earnings (before I even had my first retail job), my high school digital media teacher would come to me for help, and I've been in e-commerce since it was mailing cash in envelopes. My drive to continuously learn (and my penchant for obsessing over my passions), has led me to take on all facets of design, development and marketing.
I love developing and managing websites. I can dive into a new platform or language and learn it quickly.

I truly enjoy problem solving and welcome any challenge and opportunity to learn.
Outside of work, I have the unfortunate hobby of collecting hobbies.

I prefer shooting quiet moments and empty landscapes, unless its at a concert, but even then I look for more reflective moments.
