design + programming = ♡
I come from a fine art background and studied at Herron School of Art. I left before finishing to be home with my family and raise my 4 children. As a stay-at-home mom, I did some freelance illustration and production Photoshop work. But when I discovered the behind the scenes web world, I was hooked. When my youngest was in school all day, I started earning my Web Design and Interactive Media degree.
I am currently working to get Good Monster Design up and running as a successful freelance business. The majority of my freelance work recently has been designing banners and posters (web and print), creating interactive PDF forms, new sites or redesigns using WordPress as a CMS, regular coding of monthly emails, and updating or fixing broken areas of websites (not made by me) for clients. And on occasion, developing cool custom features - for example: an interactive google map that takes user data, sends back location specific info for the user, and collects those user stats.
In my free time I Netflix and read, mostly sci-fi/fantasy, and play Dungeons and Dragons with family and friends. I'm in a book club and usually attend Gen Con, PopCon, and/or Comic Con. I am an LGBT Ally.
