Hello there! My name is Brenda and I am a front end developer and designer. I am based in New York City, which has been my home for 10 years. I was born and raised in the Silicon Valley and have also lived in London and Italy.

Besides a love for all things web, my interests include pop culture and pop music (the good kind and the so-bad-it's-good kind), theatre, dance, football & baseball, karaoke, and online shopping (I consider it job research).
You can check out my portfolio below, and feel free to reach out to me with any comments. I am currently not taking on any new projects.
