Hi! I’m Christina.
I have helped hundreds of businesses, musicians, and educators build their presence on the web since 2001.
As a music teacher and studio owner with 20+ years of experience as a website developer & designer, I bring a unique viewpoint when creating websites for music teachers.
Here is the rest of my story:
I’ve always been a “computer geek” – although I only recently procured the glasses to go along with the personality. Building websites and coding has been a part of my life for 24 years!
Professionally, I studied Music Composition at Chapman University and graduated in 2005 with a BA in Music with honors. I paid some of my way through music school as a help desk technician in the IT department, fixing computers and sometimes doing some website work.
I found a passion in teaching piano, violin, and music theory at a local music studio during my junior year. My careers began to take shape at this time.
A few years after graduation, I opened a multi teacher music school in Irvine, CA. Our studio grew to about 200 students while I continued to work as a website developer and designer (at a design/branding firm, and freelance).
I found myself out of place in Orange County, so I moved about 45 minutes north to Long Beach in 2010 and “started over.” I currently am fortunate enough to have a full piano studio with a wait list and a growing number of music studios as website clients!
In my free time (prior to the pandemic!), I have always tried to make time to give back to my community in some capacity whenever possible. In 2019, I switched gears from volunteering with an animal rescue organization to volunteering at our local children’s hospital, alongside the music therapist.
I enjoy photography, bike riding, creating new recipes, practicing musical instruments (for enjoyment!), and hanging out with my two rescue dogs, Buddy & Bebe.
