Redesign in progress!
I'm a 26 year old mother of a tiny little Cylon living in Sydney. Technology has been a constant part of my life, from playing Aussie Rules Footy on the NES and Zool on SNES as a toddler, to my very first exposure to the Internet at six on a class excursion to the library (I looked up bikes using Netscape Navigator - I feel so old!) to helping my dad with Windows 3.11/95/98 by swapping floppy disks at 8, to purchasing my first computer at 10 by saving all my pocket money.
My first exposure to web design was at 10 years old via my brother, who came home from high school and showed me how to make my own websites using Frontpage Express. Back in those days, web design was all about cool effects that would only work in one browser and table-based designs that took days to work out why not all of the images you used would line up properly.
When I'm not coding or parenting my little Cylon, I can be found writing blog posts of varying interest, failing miserably at writing a novel, or even at your local pop culture or anime convention manning a table/booth or behind the scenes helping the convention run. Sometimes I even have time to play video games!
- Résumés Etc
Roz wanted to rebrand her business so she could market to her target audience better. Taking the branding designed by Nelle Neeb, I designed a new Wordpress theme using _s as a base. I gained a greater understanding of Wordpress and PHP, and continuing work on the theme with the goal of releasing it through Wordpress.org's Theme Directory.

Work in Progress
- My website
Prior to the current redevelopment, I was getting bogged down using Wordpress. It turned out that trying to use my site to do everything was hindering my workflow and creativity. I decided to spin off the blogging back to a long-unused Wordpress.com site, and just keep my domain for my portfolio. I work on adding content and doing the design in between amusing and taking care of my little Cylon.
- Wordpress theme
(In progress demo coming soon) This theme began life as a redesign for Résumés Etc. I quickly decided that I liked the challenge that theming for Wordpress presented me, and continued working on the theme with the goal of releasing it through Wordpress.org's Theme Directory.
- Dash for Tumblr
Dash for Tumblr is an extension of Dash Project 2, and teaches the syntax for designing and developing Tumblr themes.
