Passionate bilingual creator and developer searching to bridge gaps in society with technology and information. She comes from a rich scientific and digital media background, complemented by professional studies in anthropology, earth science, and design strategy.
By combining atomic and responsive design, I create effective content-first websites to provide journey-based user experiences for small business and individual service-provider audiences.
I have visited archaeological sites in the Americas and Spain, and I have conducted fieldwork in New Mexico, Texas, and Belize. All this combined has inspired me to be an archaeologist, but my journey has only just begun as Co-Founder, Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director of Origins Scientific Research Society, where I continue my scientific research.
As a budding web developer, I launched the journal Origins – a free journal about science – with over 4 million readers worldwide. Not only is it among the first of its kind, but it is interactive, open access, and free to read online. Of course, you probably already knew that, since you made it to my profile!
When I'm not building web applications, designing content, or learning a new programming language you will find me reading books made from trees, experimenting with a new vegan recipe, hiking through an archaeological site in a tropical location, photographing sea creatures in a scuba adventure, playing video games (mostly Pokémon), or relaxing at home watching e-sports (probably League of Legends).
