Janie, an experienced and accomplished higher-ed Web designer, has trouble writing a staff bio in the third person.
On any given day, I make Web pages: a process that might include interviewing students while they eat lunch, proposing color palettes via videochat, or browser testing and search queries with Alex. I work primarily in Photoshop and CSS. I also work primarily in my home office – in an old house, in a Chicago neighborhood called Pilsen.
I joined White Whale in early 2009 after falling hard for LiveWhale. Prior to that, I produced higher-ed communications for Lipman Hearne of Chicago. A graduate of Trinity University, I earned my MFA in Art & Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, which earns me the prize for Most Relevant Education to Your Position at White Whale Web Services.
I play in a band called Like Pioneers and I love fruity novelty candies.
