My Web Services
⁕ Web Platforms I use ⁕
While my web development journey has centered around WordPress, I’m excited and confident to extend my skills to serve users of other web platforms with the same dedication and excellence. Reach out if you need website help even if your website is not on WordPress!
It's fun working on these projects!
These are some of my past and current projects that demonstrate my skills in web development and web support.
I'm proud to partner with...
I adopt sustainable web design
Web sustainability should be a fundamental aspect of every website. This isn’t only beneficial for the planet; it also enhances web performance, user experience, and accessibility—a true win-win. I wrote more about this topic in my blog.
If you’re new to sustainable web design, this is the right place to learn about it. In this article, you’ll get to know what sustainable web design is, why it matters, and how to create it.
This is me outside of work
There’s something about running that brings out the best in me. Every time I run, I become a better person. I started running routinely when I was in primary school. I ran on and off throughout adolescence and early adulthood. I overcame the runner’s itch after settling down in the US and rekindled my love for running.
I completed a half marathon and learned that I enjoy running for fun more than training for a race. These days, I run about three days a week, for three miles each time around the Sammamish neighborhood. Watch me run a half marathon. (*Video only available in Thai)
My main goal for starting the YouTube channel is to improve my communication skills in both Thai and English. I’m originally from Thailand and have lived around Seattle for over five years. Often, my language skills got mixed up; I speak Thai in English context, for instance. At times stumble so badly in Thai or have to translate my thoughts before speaking. It’s a mess and I want to fix it.
Therefore, I practice my skills by sharing my stories about work, lifestyle, and interests on YouTube. Most of my audience is family and friends and those who stumble upon my videos 😉 Visit my channel.
Cat Mom 🐈⬛
Cats have comforted my heart deeply since childhood and taught me to find peace even in the hardest times. During Covid, I swiped right on a guy, now my husband and one of the reasons was he has a cat. I wanted to reconnect with cats so badly especially when the world was forced to physically disconnect.
So, I got myself both; a good man and a good kitty. Then we adopted another male tuxedo cat, Floofy. He’s the sweetest and the longest cat we’ve ever had. Literally. He has such a long body. We take him out into the woods sometimes. I could tell he wants to go out every day.
