developer / designer / photographer

Hi! I'm Dorothy and I'm a driven and passionate full-stack engineer. I love to learn and create new things. Though I'm a Computer Science major, design has always been a focus of mine. I believe that everything is driven by design and when paired correctly, technology and design can create a seamless and unforgettable user experience. It's not necessarily the programming that I'm passionate about, but rather the culture of constantly innovating and creating.

Design

Design is so important. So often you click away from a website because the page simply didn't look good. I'm here to help you boost the design of your product. I would love to work with you and help develop a design that suits your wants, needs, and goals. I also have extensive graphic design experience and would love to help out with any of your graphic design needs. It all starts with design!

Photography

I fell in love with photography because of my travels. I am someone who loves and appreciates a good story and through my experience, I know photography can do that -- and who doesn't appreciate a good photo? I love that photography allows me to appreciate the places and people I meet in a new way. Need photos for weddings, engagements, portraits, branding -- I'm open to anything. Let's talk!

Services | Videography

Videography

Making videos has always been a hobby of mine. From silly montage videos of my friends hanging out to more heavily edited videos featuring my travels. I've played around with editing first look videos and music videos. If you have an idea, let's get together and see what we can create together!
