Where I live and work

I am a website designer located in Buffalo, New York.  Hailing from WNY, I lived on the west coast for a large chunk of my adult life before returning to Buffalo in 2023.  Living and working in the Elmwood Village, I’m spending a good amount of my free time exploring and reacquainting myself with Erie County and beyond.

Building community where I am: one collaborator, one client, and one friend at a time.

My values

Humor

Work is, well: work.  It’s not all roses and lollipops.  But I believe that working together should be enjoyable.

I’m all about lightening up the process.  I laugh.  I make jokes.  My favorite moment in any zoom is the one where we both crack up at something absurd. 

I love what I do, and hopefully I’ll help you love it, too.

Patience

As a builder and a manager, I have decades of experience collaborating on creative projects.  There can be a lot of back-and-forth before the thing is done.

I am a strong believer in the practice of patience and the power of good communication.  If we work together, I promise that if you’re patient with me, I’ll be patient with you.

Work/life balance

I take my work seriously and strive to give my best to each of my clients. To be at my best I need healthy boundaries.  After all, a gal needs time to dive and play her ukulele.

I normally work Monday to Friday around 9:00-6:00.  Time zone difference?  Genuine emergency?  I’m flexible.  But text me at 10pm or over the weekend with a general question?  I’ll answer when I’m back at my desk.  I’ll enjoy my nights and weekends, and I promise to let you enjoy yours.

Equity

I don’t discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, color, religion, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, marital status, or military status. 

In fact, if your path is a bit off the beaten track, it’s likely we’ll have a lot in common.

What, no professional profile picture?  Maybe later.
