Building Something beautiful

Welcome to my place on the web, glad you stopped by.

I have been building websites and driving traffic to them since 2009. I live in San Francisco with my husband Alex and two cats Maginto and Grusha. I have had a hand in growing and building companies that have touched millions of people. From growth initiatives, to product features to writing and deploying software – I love working at startups where every person has a large impact.

Meeting new people is great – please contact me through any of the channels you find here 🙂
