Hi, I'm Nikki! I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2013, and last year I moved down to Phoenix, Arizona to open a gaming bar! Currently, I'm looking for some part-time work or projects in the area.
I love programming - as a hobby, educationally, and professionally. I'm most motivated when I'm learning new things, and I've picked up a lot about the various aspects of web development and design over the years. I like to do a lot of everything!
Digital painting is another one of my hobbies. You can see some of my art on my art portfolio.
Recently, a few of my projects from the University of Oregon were mentioned on Typekit's blog, including my own designs on the English and Cinema Studies websites: Check out the article here!
