coded with passion

Hi! My name is Amy, and I'm not your typical software engineer.

I'm a creative, expressive, passionate person who loves getting to know people well, so that I can design custom solutions that fit their unique needs.

My expertise is in creating an enjoyable, aesthetically pleasing user experience, built upon intelligently designed, efficient business logic that functions as beautifully as it looks.

Honestly, I love what I do. Researching the latest trends in web technologies and design, meeting with clients, project planning, marketing strategy, user interface design, database design, writing tons of code: these are the things that excite me.

Selected Projects

Long Island Nutrition - After getting to understand this nutritionist's business very well, I came up with a set of requirements for the website that would fit her business needs. I then created the visual design, then implemented the site, using PHP, Bootstrap and MySQL.

OverClocked University - Customized from an HTML template, in PHP.

My wedding website! I knew the clients for this one very well: me and my then-fiance (now husband), Jeremy. I took a lot of direction from Jeremy because I wanted him to love our wedding website. I coded it by hand with PHP and jQuery. The design is very custom because I wanted it to show our personality, and reflect the DIY theme of our wedding.
