Hi there! I'm Christina & I'm happy you're here!

I Design and I know things

I also do my own stunts

Christina The Designer

Come get to know me!

I love art and technology so I wanted a job that would incorporate the two. I began my graphic design career back in the days of Flash, Dreamweaver, and Quark. Since the program I completed in art school was heavily focused on print design, I was left to my own devices as far as web design. I'm no stranger to the learning process and love that in this career I will always constantly be learning something new. The challenge is to stay ahead of the trends and catch on to what is up and coming as well as cutting edge. I studied HTML, CSS, Javascript, Bootstrap, Python and Ruby through Codecademy, Udemy and other online resources. I consider myself a visual person and a visual learner. YouTube has been a great resource to support my learning approach. Currently I belong to Girls in Tech Seattle, Girl Develop It, Learn to Code Seattle, Seattle JSHackers, Women who Code, and Seattle WordPress Meetup Groups.

My skill set includes Adobe Suite (PhotoShop, InDesign, AfterEffects, Illustrator), HTML5 / CSS3, WordPress, Web Design, Print Design, Bootstrap, Proficiency on cross platforms both Mac and PC, GitBash, GitHub, BitBucket, Current coding languages I'm learning include Javascript, Python and Ruby.

Besides my professional and creative career, I've been into GAMING since I was 5 years old. My first system being a 8-bit NES, I now have an impressive collection of games. Technology of gaming has just blown me away from where we started to where we are now. Being born in the 80s I was around at the beginning of the gaming revolution and I'm very eager to see how interactive gaming and the entertainment industry in general will use technological advances to further our experiences.
