Professionally I love design and code that is clean, simple and usable. I'm not a fan of Flash but I love HTML5 and jQuery. When I have free time I still like to design websites for fun and to test the limits of my skills. I am a perfectionist. I am that person that will continue to tweak until it's just right. I don't settle for second best. I am constantly surfing the web for ideas and inspiration and most of all to learn something new. I love web design books and blogs too.
Personally I am an admitted nerd. I love to read. Some of my favorite authors being Sarte, Kafka, China Mieville, Chuck Palahniuk, Jasper Fforde and David Sadris. I love anime and manga and I'm a video game geek. I like to sew and crochet. I've also been told I'm a pretty good cook. I am a huge music fan and one of the biggest Radiohead fans you are likely to meet but also love listening to Modest Mouse, Muse, Arcade Fire, Silversun Pickups, Pink Floyd and Interpol to name a few. I love to listen to music while coding. I get some of my best inspirations from the music I love. I have a quirky and silly sense of humor. I am fiercely loyal. I live in Newington with my husband and my two kitties.
Giving Credit Where it's Due
I didn't come up with all this stuff by myself and I use a lot of great websites and resources to help me with my web designs. Here are some of the ones I used in the making of this site.

Front Page Slider
There are so many slider solutions out there to choose from that creating one from scratch these days is almost a waste of time, but which one is the best? For me hands down it's Nivo Slider. They even have Drupal and WordPress plugins ready to go! This slider is a timesaver and a lifesaver. Elegant and easy to install and I adore it.
