Hi, I'm Naomi!

I'm a designer and developer who specializes in building beautiful, interactive websites and web apps.

hey there!

me as my animal crossing character

I'm Naomi, an artist and web developer from the Bay Area, CA. I've been building websites since the fourth grade, and in that time I've worked hard to refine my skills and embark on more and more complex projects.

I've worked extensively with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and lately I've been diving deep into web app development with Node.js and React. I code primarily for fun, to challenge myself, and to master new and exciting technologies, but I'm deeply interested in using tech to benefit people and am eager to start getting involved in projects that have purpose, meaning, and potential.

freelance services

I'm currently available for freelance opportunities! If you have a project in mind and are in search of a developer to help you bring it to life, I'd love to hear from you. My approach to web development is collaborative and client-oriented: I will work closely with you to build a website that looks great, works well, and accommodates your specific preferences and needs.

Web Design

I'll draw up a website design that suits your needs well and creates an excellent first impression. You'll get a clean, attractive design that combines your organization's aesthetic with a simple, clear, and consistent user interface.

Web Development

I'll build you a functional, responsive website from the ground up. If you have a design ready to go, I'll bring it to life with pixel-perfect accuracy; if not, we can work together to create a design that works for you.
