Designer + Developer

About

It all started over a decade ago when my logo design was chosen to represent the Technical Arts Academy at my high school — and that’s when I fell in love with design.  Over the years, I shifted gears from print to web design. My passion for visual arts and development would converge, and I would then major in web design and development. I have since worked as a designer and developer on many web and print-based projects for a range of clients across the globe.

Writing code is fun, and now I spend the day making creative businesses look amazing online. I'm a member of the AIGA and Squarespace Circle, I built Unraveled Academy, an online school for photographers, and I design and distribute a quarterly magazine for a non-profit for autism, Spectrum Inspired. When I’m not designing or writing lines of code, you can find me doing life with my son and our rescue pup, Jax.

 

My Core Values


WORK-LIFE BALANCE

I work almost around the clock Monday through Friday. Don’t ask me to work on the weekends, and I won’t ask you to do so either. I love my job, but at the end of the day, it’s just a job I do to create a better life for my family. I’m a mother first, and a web developer second. We will get along very well if you have a life outside of work too.


CLARITY

When we're both up-front about our goals and expectations, everybody wins. I'm very transparent in my business and give it to you straightforward. So, let’s stay in touch often and be realistic about our objectives. If you are clear in your communication and organization, our partnership will go far.


Respect

Be kind. That's all.


 
 

Kirenia worked so hard to create what I had envisioned for my site. She was knowledgeable and friendly and responded quickly to any questions or ideas that I had throughout the process. My website is gorgeous and even better than what I had in mind. She was an absolute pleasure to work with – always available and willing to offer advice and put forward constructive suggestions and make changes when necessary. I look forward to working with her on any future projects and highly recommend her to anyone looking to start a new business or update an existing website.

Kirenia is absolutely incredible with her design and development abilities. Not only is she insanely talented but she works fast and efficiently and was able to take our vision and turn it into the most beautiful website we could ever imagine. She is easy to get in touch with, works hard and is passionate about what she does. Her eye is impeccable and we cannot recommend her enough.
