I'm Crystal deBoer,

and I make Websites

About Me

I’m a web designer and front-end web developer. I love to spend as much of my day as possible, experimenting with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript; dabbling with PHP and honing my Photoshop skills.

I’m curious, and I enjoy work that challenges me to learn something new and stretch in a different direction.

At the moment, I'm looking for a company to place some roots and gorw. It's been a hard transition from New York City to Denver and I'm excited to work for a company that will appericate my skills and experiences.

Once I started programming I realized it was my true calling. I specialize in creating custom web sites for musicians and small businesses, focusing primarily on mobile responsive design and development.

I also blog on topics relating to my self-taught web design learning experiences, food and my personal adventures. As I sharpen my skills in coding and design, I display the results in my ever growing portfoilio to remind me how far I've come.

Crystal was our office manager during the time our relatively-small company was in transition and growing very rapidly. As such, she had to wear a number of hats and provided additional help to our sales and billing departments. She is as dedicated a worker as you could find and helped bring some sense of order to the chaos around us.

Crystal was a pleasure to work with. Her skill set spoke for itself. There wasn't a challenge Crystal did not rise for. She is great in whatever she sets her mind on. Crystal was dependable and an asset to work with. I miss Crystal's expertise and input in whatever project we had before us.
