Team Member SpotlightHometown: Virginia Beach, VA
Position: Senior Design Consultant
Been with InMotion Hosting since: December 2010

How did you get started in the web hosting field?
My Fine Arts/Graphic Design degree led me to have essential knowledge of the custom web design process, web hosting, and the benefits of investing into a professional, online presence.

What is your current role at InMotion Hosting? What do you like most about it?
As the Senior Design Consultant, my design background and the ease of working in a relaxed environment has allowed me to consult with small and medium size business owners.  I’ve also had the good fortune in working with Non-Profit organizations. This position has allowed our in-house team to custom build their new sites from scratch.

Coolest gadget you own, want to own or have read about?
I am not really into gadgets for the most part, but I really love my Suunto Ambit3 watch. I can wear it surfing or to a wedding, and still look sharp. It’s lasted surfing, snowboarding and my 70 lb dog. My next gadget, on the horizon, hopefully sooner than later, will be a Toyota Tacoma Sport.

What would you like to tell us about yourself?
Ever since I was able to hold a pencil, I have been doodling. My illustration, painting and graphic design outside of my experience with InMotion has allowed me to continue my creativity. I have participated in both the Boardwalk Art Show and Neptune Festival, and continue to manage my own WordPress site as a personal portfolio (our design team built it for me!).

Describe your personality in one word?
Adventurous.
