That’s me, Katie, on the left. Nice to meet you!
Who I Am
I’m a William & Mary and UNC grad with a B.S. and M.S. in math. I grew up with Photoshop and a love for design, and I always had several creative projects in the works. When I discovered that web programming was a beautiful combination of analytics and artistry, I was hooked! I started Yellow Rubber Ball in 2009 when I graduated from UNC, and it’s been a fantastic journey. I love what I do!
I’m based in the fabulous community of Durham, North Carolina, where you can often find me perfecting my craft at Bull City Coworking.
What I Do
I’m a WordPress and BuddyPress developer and designer. I also build mobile apps (iOS and Android) and custom web apps. I do all forms of WordPress consulting, from building a new site from the ground up, to redesigns, custom plugins & widgets. I’ve been known to do logos and print design work.
As my skill list suggests, I love collecting new skills and experiences. I’m an adventurer – whether it’s learning photography, preparing a durian, or scheming up a new bicycling desk, I’m always into something new. I love technology, and exploring ways to live your best life. I currently run a Meetup group, the Triangle Lifestyle Designers – a community for people working to actively design their best lives through travel, meaningful businesses, and general lifehacking. Join our group!
I’m especially fond of where technology and growth intersect, in the Quantified Self movement. I’m currently working on an app in this space, CrittrCo. CrittrCo provides a set of personal growth coaching tools, for use by coaches with their clients. It’s also designed for individuals to use to coach themselves – after all, you know you the best! We’re currently in a private beta mode. If you would like an invitation, please let me know!
What all my projects and passions have in common is me – and the boundless energy I put into them. So, I call my business Yellow Rubber Ball!
