About me

My story

Originally from Hawaii, I’m a WordPress web designer and podcaster living in London for the last 6 years. I specialise in building strategic websites for travel brands, though my biggest passion is sharing inspirational stories of successful female entrepreneurs on the Travel Business Lounge.

My decade of experience working in the tourism industry is key to creating highly intentional and effective websites for travel businesses. 

Passionate about design

I love playful colour palettes, retro typefaces, bold patterns, natural light, earth tones, the mid-century modern aesthetic, and rainbows.

Questions often asked


Answers to your most burning questions. 

WordPress is (by far) the most robust, customisable, and easy to use CMS (content management system) out there. Plus, the New York Times, Disney, Sony, and Beyonce all use WordPress — and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me! 

Not reguarly, but I am familiar with Squarespace and Leadpages. Get in touch if you’re interested in those platforms. 

Of course! Before the launch, I will provide several tutorials on how to manage your new website. And I offer a free month of support after the launch, in case you have any questions. 

Starting from £300 for a basic landing page and from £800 for a multi-page website. 

My goal is to bring your vision to life, so please share as much detail as possible about your goals for the website and the look/feel you want to achieve. I’ll also need login details, social media links, web copy, and any last bits needed to get the ball rollin!

Most websites are built between 2-4 weeks. 

Yes! Please just ask at the time of your enquiry 🙂
