COMMANDER OF CHAOS
UPDATE: At the beginning of 2019, my husband and I found out we are expecting our first child! Our baby girl is due to arrive around early October. While I am over-the-moon excited, it does mean that I will be on maternity leave beginning late September through the end of the year.
Hello! I am the resident graphic designer and website developer at Third Angle. Because I have an eagerness to learn I dive into each new project with childlike enthusiasm to learn all I can about who they are and what makes them tick. It is because of this I feel the projects I create are more authentic and representative of, not just, the business but also the people behind it.
My passion for design and technology started early in life. Being a tried and true 90's kid I was a wiz at busting out the ol’ 5¼ floppies on the home computer, playing Duck Hunt on the Nintendo, wearing out my Disney VHS's or enjoying the sweet, sweet, sound of connecting to the internet. It was exciting times! When I wasn’t allowed to endlessly stare at a dim, green-tinted, screen or TV, I could be found immersed in a of a sea of crayons, markers, coloring books and colored paper dreaming and creating.
That passion never wavered through my adolescence. In high school I was able to start college early and boy was that the BEST thing that ever happened to me. I quickly gobbled up every bit of information I could get. From color theory, production design to creativity & visual thinking, I ate it up, and graduated from high school with laser focus - I was going to be... a FREELANCER!
...Well, I quickly discovered Freelancing doesn’t come with an instant shipment of cash and it’s actually really hard to pay bills with monopoly money. So I started working for local small businesses doing design work.
It wasn’t until I found web design that I knew I found my true calling. I had dabble in it for several years, creating small websites here and there but never thought I would love it like I would. Creating a digital experience for people to showcase and promote their passion was exciting and, well, I’ve been captivated since. My two favorite things about working in this industry are seeing someone light up when they talk about their passion and hearing them talk about how they just 'can't keep up' because business is great. Being able to do what you love and be successful at it is the icing on a very sweet cake.
When I'm at the office you'll discover a very outgoing and even comedic person, some would even going so far to say I’m the social butterfly. However, and slightly ironically, I am the most introverted personality in the office. (I’m an INFP) I’d actually prefer designing for hours listening to music, snowboarding at Keystone’s Outback or enjoying a good Netflix binge.
