Built With Care

If you're thinking about getting some webwork done, you need to talk to Rachel Brandsness. I'm used to people developing layouts for stuff and then handing them off to me, and then I fix all their mistakes and drop all of our database-driven stuff into it - Rachel whipped out our new website, and it was a breeze to integrate - it looks great (I had an agent tell me it looked like a 'very expensive website'), scales, and didn't require any fixing at all. Really good work. Rachel is pretty fabulous at this stuff, and she's using current tech (advanced css, divs, etc. I still use Tables, but I'm a loser) that works on handhelds and across all major browsers. If you need some web stuff done, get with Rachel.
You'll thank me.

Coffees Consumed

A native of the Pacific Northwest, I built my first website in 2013 and never looked back. As a front-end designer, I build and work with websites on a number of platforms, specializing in SEO Optimized Mobile-First Responsive Design, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery. I have experience building and designing with Bootstrap 4, as well as Wordpress. I also design graphics, logos, and other custom content, and is proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator. I am also the designer/developer behind all Dame Saint Orléans Websites.

Ever a fan of Legos and taking things apart and putting them back together to learn how they work, I was hooked on learning to code right away. I love the opportunity for continued learning, and hope to gradually add more full-stack languages to my skillset as well, starting with a more in-depth knowledge of Javascript and its libraries. When I'm not coding, I play guitar for several rock bands based out of Nashville, TN. I also love to ski and am a devoted connoisseur of spicy foods, most notably in the form of burritos. I look forward to working with you on your next project!
