Who am I?

Headshot of myself.
Hi, I'm Lindsey.
When I'm not perusing the Internet to find something neat to incorporate into a website or app, you can probably find me in class or at work. I'm a third year Web and Mobile Computing major at Rochester Institute of Technology and I love designing and developing websites and apps. What do I believe in? Creating beautiful, accessible websites and apps that are dynamic and fun to use.

At the base of my soul, I am a curious person with high goals and big dreams. I love asking questions, taking things apart, and finding out how they work. I want to create a better world for the next generations, and I want to find ways to make life better.

Here's a little bit about me: I grew up in Rhode Island and am currently based out of Rochester, New York. I have a really cute dog and I enjoy creating cool things from chainmaille to stained glass to crocheted things, and of course, websites and apps.
