Hello! I’m not sure how you found me, but I’m glad that you did.
To sum up, I design websites that look great on phones, tablets, and computers, and that are very easy to maintain. I prefer WordPress as a CMS (content management system). I like to use color and imagery to help business owners and artists convey their message to visitors, existing and potential. I am also well-versed in e-commerce websites through the use of Paypal and WooCommerce.
I help people use social media and content to their advantage. I can instruct nearly anyone on best practices for web maintenance and social media, hashtags, and SEO.
I am also a photographer who specializes in portraits and headshots, food/cocktail photography, interiors and exteriors for real estate, still life photography, and in photo retouching using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.
On the personal side, I am a California native, born in the early 80’s, and a lover of 90’s music. I am most creative when the sun goes down and into the early morning hours. I love sunset naps in my backyard hammock, snuggling my three rat terrier pups, and sipping a glass of wine in the evening. I know all of the words to “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” by Tupac and Snoop Dogg. The first car I ever bought for myself was a black 1998 Ford Mustang GT with black leather interior, and I miss it like the dickens. I’d consider myself adventurous, but not necessarily brave. I am a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Francisco Giants. I enjoy being on the beach, but I’ve only been in the ocean twice (once on a snorkeling dive in Catalina). I also love sushi and cheesecake.
My core values are honesty, compassion, and forgiveness. I think it’s more important to listen than it is to speak. When it comes to ideas: give me an inch, I will give you a mile. I prefer to arrive early, and I believe that the entire world is a glorious opportunity to learn.
If you’re down, I would LOVE to work with you! Let’s talk about your ideas.

The Ocean’s Power

The ocean is a fantastic place to a lot of people; the sounds, the colors, the smells, the unknowns. For some, it can be peaceful; for others, overwhelming; for a lot of us, both. And with the love of the ocean comes great personal responsibility. I know this first hand from watching a friend — who, by her own accord, is a fantastic swimmer with excellent sea legs — get nearly swept up in its uncontrollable waves from beneath the surface. I, myself, have been full-body in the ocean twice. On one occasion, I was snorkeling with my fourth-grade class in Catalina; on the other occasion I jumped in with two friends and swam past the first break. Both were memorable; one was terrifying.

From the time I was very young I have been fascinated with the sea and all of the life beneath the surface. Sometimes I think that the fact that we, as humans, somewhat arrogantly believe that we rule this planet is slightly humorous to me, because we are so, so wrong; the ocean owns us when we bother to get in or near it. Oceans cover over 70% of the earth, and there is absolutely nothing — man, god, or machine — that can tell the ocean what to do or what not to do. It is truly a humbling place. Where the water meets the sand is perhaps the most humbling, too, because it changes all the time, often at a moment’s notice.

I have spent as much time as possible on the water or near it, and I have taken a lot of photographs of the sea and its surroundings. Here are just a few:
