I am a Senior Software Engineer at a company that builds a nonprofit CRM for fundraising & advocacy. My role there is mostly to write complex, back end code that makes the tools we offer work. Although this work is interesting, at some point along the way I started longing for projects that enabled me to utilize my creativity more. I have always been a very musical and creative person – nothing relaxes me more than letting my mind wander free over the sounds of my piano.
This led me to test the waters of website design, and before long I was hooked. I love the creative experience of designing and coding a website to fit a business’s unique brand, and love the satisfaction of knowing that a new site is going to help promote someone’s business to another level.
Website design allows me to merge both my computer coding background and my creativity to build something truly special for small businesses – because I believe a great site should be both beautiful and functional.
