I've always had a passion for the creative industry, from animation to design. I love to explore and I've been blessed to translate that curiosity into a career. I also found a passion to help people tell their story.
Speaking of stories, here's a little story about how I got into web design and Webflow development.
I graduated the Academy of Art University School of Animation with a BFA in Character Animation.
Here we go! Time to start animating!
Coming off a 5-week contract with a small animation company, I was trying to figure out what my next steps were.
The next steps seemed to have found me when I was given an opportunity to help redesign a website for a local specialty spirits distillery.
I was skeptical of my web skills, I only knew a bit of HTML at this point (think the days of Geocities). I was an animator, not a Web Designer! Should I do this? I don't know what I'm doing!
I had zero experience with styling with CSS at all, but I went for it anyway. I spent my weekends learning how to do CSS, and I kept building and building. Wow this is awesome, and I can do this for a living?!
By this time, I've had a couple clients under my belt, but I felt like I was starting to hit the ceiling. I realized I didn't like to code, but I want to see my designs come to life in a well structured website.
I was searching for an easier way to design and have better control of my code, Dreamweaver wasn't really it, and Wordpress wasn't it either.
I was discouraged, I started doubting myself and lost confidence and interest in Web Design.
Then I discovered Ran Segall's youtube channel, and saw him designing with Webflow. I was intrigued. "What is Webflow?" I thought, is this even for real?
Like with learning CSS, I went for it, I jumped in head first and wow amazing! I think found my answer....Let's Do this!
My career is still evolving, and thats a great thing!
I've been able to do things like teach others what I've learned through Webflow, and I've learned a lot from others too!
Webflow has given me the confidence to build great websites, and I am constantly learning and look forward to what the future brings! Let's do this!
Nothing is perfect, no strategy, no person. However when we work together, I will be as honest as I can humanly be every step of the way from beginning to end. This is the #1 way I can show kindness.
I'm here to listen, and learn from you. I want to understand your goals for your business. I also believe that learning from others is a great way to build experience, and confidence. Let's learn together!
I found that the best way to lead is by serving others. Empowering them to do their best work allows me to do my best work as well! I strive for this everyday. No ego trips here!
