I first started exploring the world of web design in seventh grade, when I launched my very own, very tacky Geocities homepage. After completing my social sciences degree, I decided I wanted to get back to my roots -- tinkering with code! I currently reside in the Lehigh Valley, and in the future I hope to be able to continue to explore the rest of the world, too.
