My name is Kristin Falkner and I am a freelance web developer, specializing in WordPress & Shopify custom themes. I have been creating websites since I was only a teenager. I developed my first professional website for a law firm at the age of 16 and I have continued pursuing it ever since. While I do have a degree in marketing, I am completely self-taught in web development, which I think is a huge advantage as you can’t really ever stop self-teaching in web development as it’s a constantly evolving industry.
I’m from the Kansas City area originally, but I moved out to Los Angeles in my early 20s. I currently split my time between the two. I travel often & whenever I can, as one of my favorite things about what I do is the ability to do it from anywhere with a working internet connection. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with agencies all across the U.S., as well as internationally, so I’m experienced with staying highly communicative and virtually present enough to overcome any physical distance. If I’m not in the Los Angeles or Kansas City area, I’m probably in New York or San Diego or who knows where! When I’m not traveling or staring at a computer screen, you will probably find me at the movie theater, staring at my Kindle’s screen lost in a book, or spending time with my rescue pup named Lola and my other family & friends.
