I believe we are fearfully and wonderfully made. I look around at the world and see a creation that had a loving designer. Just like the strategy and intelligence it takes to create a web page, an app, a car, or a building, our home and ourselves were no accident. I can see the design patterns, the user experience optimization, and the information architecture. I believe in God. He believes in me.
When Dad asked me to build him a website so many years ago, I didn’t know how far it was going to take me. From nothing, I scratched out a thriving freelance business and a good reputation among my peers, especially in the WordPress community. Eventually, I turned it into a successful career, working in various agencies. Today, I am happily employed as a front-end web developer at Higher Education.
I love pixels whether I’m looking at them in design comps, or polishing them in the browser. I get giddy over beautiful interfaces whether it be to inspire me for my next design or something I get to build. Few things make me happier than to see someone else enjoy what I’ve made.
Christopher and I married and started our family quite young. I gave birth to three daughters before I turned 23! Life was hard getting started, and isn’t finished dealing its worst, I’m sure. God has brought us through it all and blesses us with more than enough. Eliana, Lydia, and Chloe are now t(w)eens, and Lulu (a 97 pound mastiff/lab) is our baby. Chris and I celebrate 15 years of marriage and we make our home in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
