Hi, my name is Laura! I am a web developer & designer from Victoria, BC with experience in social media, online marketing, and search engine optimization. I plan, design & build websites that look great on all devices, follow industry best practices, and help individuals and businesses to stand out. I can also help to promote your website using online marketing campaigns, develop brand identities, and design print materials and ads for all mediums.

I am a creative thinker, a quick learner, and am always looking for new techniques and tricks. I have a particular passion for CSS and responsive design, and always strive to make sites look pixel-perfect. In my spare time, I love to give back to the local tech community by volunteering for Ladies Learning Code, as well as indulge in some of my other passions: art, photography, cooking, board games and video games.
