About Micah

Administrator & Web Developer

Hey there! I'm a creative soul with a passion for blending technology with artistry. As far back as I can remember, I've been immersed in the world of literature, strumming chords on my guitar, crafting melodies, and writing poetry. Growing up, my imagination was my playground, and creativity was my guiding light.

My journey into the realm of technology was somewhat unexpected but incredibly rewarding. It all started with a curiosity sparked by my friends who are engineers and software developers. Their passion for coding ignited something within me, and I found myself drawn to the endless possibilities of programming.

Before diving into the world of web development, I took it upon myself to learn the ropes, tinkering with code and building my own projects. It was a challenging yet exhilarating experience that laid the foundation for what was to come.

Eventually, I decided to formalize my skills by pursuing a full stack web development certification at the University of Utah. The program not only deepened my understanding of coding but also honed my ability to bring my creative visions to life in the digital realm.

I can't wait to see where this journey takes me next.

About Ciara

Founder & Lead Designer

Ever since I could remember, creativity, art, and design has been an integral part of my life. From winning blue ribbons at the Houston Rodeo, attending art camps at the Glassell School of Art, and teaching myself to sew, I knew when I grew up I wanted to do something creative, but was overwhelemed with options.

In addition to art + design, I enjoyed problem solving and puzzles, constantly moving furniture around in my head and making it fit perfectly, fixing things by taking them apart and putting them back together, and always trying to find solutions with no help but my own.

In 2022 the AHA moment happened... with the help of TikTok and friends in the computer science field, I learned there was a job where I could mix my love of creativity and problem solving... coding! 

In October of 2022 I had completed a coding boot-camp at the University of Utah, receiving my certificate in Full Stack Web Development. With my knowledge of design and education in tech I am fully equipped to create beautiful websites + designs that are optimized, efficient, and beautiful. 

I can't wait to work with you and see what we create!
