Portland, OR

I'm convinced my life calling was web design. The fact that my fútbol skills and bad knees aren't quite up to pro level probably plays some role too.

I started in this industry in Europe – Spain, to be exact. After college, that is. Then it was back home to my beloved Portland (RCTID!) where I had an almost-two-year stint at a local company's graphic design department. I was the number two gal there... out of two. Until I realized it was time to move on.

The economy sucked then too. So I took a chance and started my Portland-based web design company, 420 Creative. I gave myself 6 months to get it rockin'. It's now been over 10 years.
