ABOUT

profile photo

Hi there! My name is Whitney.

I'm a designer-developer based in Greenville, South Carolina.

A true form-follows-function girl, I develop clean, simple solutions that speak across boundaries. My favorite projects center around a strong brand identity, especially those with multicultural and multilingual aspects.

In 2014, I shifted my focus from design to development. This year, I want to help others join the tech community; you can catch me on Twitter, or see me speak.

When I'm not coding, I enjoy strong coffee, good books, and international travel. You'll often find me chattering about my time in Germany.
