who is joanna?

Joanna creates beautiful, functional and intuitive websites and mobile application experiences. She designs with her constant companion (and dog) Meatball by her side, nodding her head to hip-hop and dreaming of one day becoming a champion figure skater.




Joanna hails from the upper peninsula of Michigan. She attended Kendall College of Art and Design. Joanna left Michigan in 2010 in search of bigger and better things. She landed 2,000 miles away  in Portland, Oregon, working odd jobs, & trying to figure out what to do with her life. One of the first things she did when she relocated was get involved in her local design community through volunteering with AIGA Portland. 5 years later she's still deeply involved & finds the work incredibly rewarding. Professionally, Joanna discovered her love of web & interactive design while working her first agency job at a small startup that built games & apps for children.

Joanna has a background in illustration & loves when she can find the time to bust open her sketchbook & draw her favorite hip hop artists. Joanna also loves music, her dog meatball & is currently reliving her teenage dream of becoming a competitive figure skater.
