Basically, I am an all around savvy tech gal that has a genuine talent for finding solutions to all kinds of technical problems. I am a professional, web/graphics designer, photographer and web marketing specialist, who has acquired a vast array of skills and experience encompassing near all areas of new media design and content development over the past 10+ years.
When it comes to the technical skills to pay the bills, I have extensive experience with a number of programs and technologies. This includes Adobe’s Creative Suite (With an emphasis on Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver). I am fluent in several web programming languages including XHTML, HTML5, CSS, and PHP, and am no stranger to the inner workings of web content management systems – especially WordPress and the development of WordPress based child themes. I also have a crazy amount of administrative tech experience working with Google Apps Suite, Salesforce, and a wide variety of web and cloud-based applications.
