Sup! Do people still say “sup?” or did I just age myself? Whatevs. I’m a cool mom.
Snark Studios is all about delivering good code without confusion, and in general being a good citizen + treating clients with respect, communicating clearly, and being reliable.
Sounds like simple things everyone should do, but we know developers sometimes have a bad rap – and whether it’s deserved or not, we’re here to…have a good rap?
Basically we want YOU to have a good experience, to give you the website you need and deserve, and probably spread some snarky commentary while we’re at all this internet building.
I’m the solopreneuring snarky southern gal behind the curtain. I’ve found my groove in building WordPress websites for small to medium sized businesses, and helping designers and agencies make their gorgeously designed sites and interfaces a clickable Internet reality.
I’ve been building websites since high school electives in 2004, and graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Business Information Technology, which is like Computer Science, only less math and more people-friendly.
I spent some time in a corporate IT department as a developer and the v fancy + mysteriously titled “business analyst,” before fleeing the cubicle farm to work as a consultant helping to manage large-scale, multi-year technology projects.
In 2016, circumstances basically forced me to start Snark Studios, and as they say, I never looked back.
All this to say, I’ve worked with + for + on a wide variety of people, companies, and projects. I’m self-taught in a lot of things, but corporate America taught me how to hold my drink and my appetizer plate in the same hand and I think we can all admit that is impressive.
<hi, what are chops?>
Graduated from Virginia Tech in 2009. Native Richmonder (that’s Virginia, our nation’s most beautiful Commonwealth) and suburbanite. Raleigh transplant + lover. Married. Pregnant (feels like it’ll never end but I’m told that’s a fallacy) (due in January, so I guess eventually I’ll change this part to say “new parent”). Rescue dog owner and lover and spoiler and snuggler, duh.
Type A but lazy. Rebel, according to Gretchen Rubin. Seriously snarky. Lover of sarcastic comments + witty banter. Homebody who wants to make friends with a barista somewhere, someday. Introvert who is scared to say no to things in case people stop inviting me, because FOMO.
Adamantly against “smart” pant suits and “business casual” on my body since 2012. Investor-level funding of the athleisure industry since 2013, yet probably not cool enough to wear Vans.
Still considering writing a book. Never considering running a marathon. May consider becoming a yoga or pilates teacher. Lover of travel, and only slightly because freelancers are supposed to say that.
