I am writing these poems from inside a lion...
~ Shel Silverstein
I am a User Experience (UX) Lead Designer and Drupal Front End Developer at Hook 42.
In 1983, I fell in love for the first time. It was an Apple IIe with 2 floppy disk drives. I learned to program it in Basic and played games and even helped print mailing labels for a local politician. Since then, I have had many loves and am proud to have been a part of the internet through university since 1991.
After getting my art degree, I got my first job at a web development shop as a project manager. Since then, I have had many jobs working in application development including UI/UX designer, information architect, programmer, and project manager. I’ve worked with a really great set of clients from large corporations to small business owners. For each project I have done, I’ve brought passion and professionalism to create a great site that meets the client's needs.
For the last 3 years, I have felt very privileged to work with an extremely talented group of designers and developers. Hook 42 has meant opportunity for me to become part of a close work family, to join an open source community, and to grow my skills as a front-end developer.
Today, I am an expert in information architecture, responsive design, and cutting-edge front-end development. When I’m not doing that, I’m mother to 3 crazy kids who keep me busy going to the beach, building Legos, and creating all kinds of crazy things as a maker. I am very fortunate.
