About Me

Hi there! I’m Lea, a self-taught designer, illustrator, web developer, and entrepreneur from Newark, NJ. With no formal education in the design space, I taught myself everything from the fundamentals of design and user experience to advanced interface design theories. I’m always up for a challenge, whether it’s developing a brand or coming up with the next big entrepreneurial idea. Just don’t ask me to choose between a MacBook or a PC – it’s a sore subject! But one thing’s for sure, I put my heart and soul into every project and am not afraid to take risks and push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Here are some quick facts about my experiences and current life, both as a person and as a creative.

Learned HTML with Mircosoft Frontpage in 1999

Back in the dot-com era, on my trusty Compaq computer, I delved into the world of web design, using Microsoft FrontPage to master the art of HTML. Those late nights building web pages were the beginnings of an enduring passion.

Placed 2nd in an anti-crime billboard contest at 14 y/o

At just 14, I harnessed my artistic talents to secure 2nd place in a state-wide anti-crime billboard contest. With my drawings, I sent a strong message against crime, even at a young age.

I'm a trained Recording Engineer

Once a trained audio engineer, I now channel my creative energy into web design. The transition from sound to pixels brought a new rhythm to my professional journey.

I'm learning Spanish and German

Embracing the challenge of dual language learning, I’m currently tackling Spanish and German simultaneously with Duolingo. It’s a thrilling linguistic adventure.

I'm the mom of a US Airman

As a proud mother, my heart soars alongside my son, an airman in the US Air Force. He’s not just my child, but a skilled airplane mechanic, keeping our skies safe.
