Web design is like learning to ride a bike...

Riding my bicycle is one of my favorite things to do and now I am teaching my son to ride his bike and it is just a really cool experience, albeit sometimes quite frustrating. That is very much similar to how I feel about learning to design websites. While I have learned enough with my training wheels that I can battle up hills, navigate around tricky paths, and I rarely fall anymore, it is time for the extra set to come off and for me to just GO FOR IT. 

When I learn something new I want to be the best at it. As a child I not only wanted to learn to ride my bike, but to do it with “no hands,” so I taught myself how. When I was twenty I became the president of the cycling club at the community college I was going to. I learned about the different parts of the bike and how to repair them and I once did a fifty mile bike ride… for fun! My point is, when I am dedicated to something I go all in and that is what I plan to do with my clients’ websites. Furthermore, I am a life-long learner and believe there is always room for improvement, so my clients can expect to get the most up-to-date design technology.

Okay, enough with the bike analogy...

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Fresno State with a degree in English Literature and went straight into my master’s program thinking I wanted to be a librarian. While I LOVE my librarians and libraries in general, I am realizing I am much more attracted to the Information Sciences. So I pivoted my career and studies to focus on user-experience research & design and data analysis. I hope to complete my program at the San Jose State Information School in 2022, but I am just rolling with it for now… (that was the last bike joke, swear). Besides school and work (and cycling) I am a novice yogi and runner, and I love to read, write, hike, cook, travel by train and car, and improve on my Spanish. I also have three dogs named Ella Fitzgerald, Patsy Cline, and Olivander and two guinea pigs, Hermy and Ginny.
