The dandelion is so many beautiful things. It's a flower that transforms (my favorite) into a wistful cotton ball. Precious gifts to mothers. Grants wishes when blown. Carries seeds on the wind. Strong, resilient, and surprisingly, a weed. Available for everyone to enjoy.
Owner / Developer
I'll eventually need to let go of some control and hire the team I planned to in the beginning of this journey. For the time being, it's just me - Ashley.
I graduated from Southern Methodist University in 2000 earning a BA in Psychology and a Bfa in Art. I started working at the SMU Webmasters Office in 1997 supporting student and organizational websites as well as teaching myself ASP and database architecture. In 2000, during the internet startup boom, I moved to Austin, Texas to begin my web career.
I've learned a few things. What to do, definitely what NOT to do. I've really gotten into the immediacy of jQuery/Ajax. I also love that you can manipulate layout using style sheets.

I enjoy hearing "my job is so much easier since you added ..." My strength is listening to a basic job function, the frustrations, the current work arounds, the limitations, and then turning around and developing an application that makes their job easier.
Most projects start with a CMS. You've probably heard of WordPress or Joomla. I wasn't a fan of their combersome and finicky website management solutions so I bult my own.
