My family and I moved from the Bay Area to Redding at the beginning of 2014. We were seeking a new adventure that would allow us to grow and achieve significant milestones. Like most, we have fallen in love with the nature and outdoor activities the North State has to offer. I have held several different positions in several different industries that have rounded out my ability to a successful people-person. What gives me life is working with people’s ideas, developing plans to support ideas, and turning ideas into realities. At the undergraduate and graduate levels, I have studied organizational leadership. I enjoy applying what I have learned into my work by seeking sound innovation, discovering active and productive change agents, and coaching. In my spare time I can be found going on family hikes, supporting my daughters’ in their passions, endlessly perusing my wife, behind a camera snapping pictures, playing tennis, or coaching volleyball. I look forward to working with those who are seeking Optimize Worldwide service’s and helping ideas become realities.

I was born and raised in the Bay Area and began my career right out of high school in various Office Administration and Accounting positions in organizations ranging from Construction to some of the Silicon Valleys largest tech companies. After relocating to Redding, CA several years ago, I decided to continue my education at Shasta College by actively pursuing a degree in Business Administration. My career goal has always been to provide excellent customer service as well as being a dependable team member to my fellow employees and supervisors, and I am excited to utilize my skills at Optimize Worldwide. Away from the office I am a dedicated wife and mother who enjoys reading, movies, road trips and outdoor adventuring.

I was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. I recently moved to Redding taking on one of the greatest adventures of my life. Although I am far from home, I feel so privileged to be able to explore such a beautiful city and I'm excited to get more involved! I've always had a vast array of creative interests. After high school, I was accepted to the Savannah College of Art and Design for Interior Design. However, after deciding to stay in my home town for a few more years, I landed in a few graphic design courses and completely fell in love with every aspect. As a designer, I've been honored to design wedding invitations for friends, take on charity projects, and pursue any creative opportunity that comes my way. More recently I've been interested in expanding my knowledge of web development and photography. I love the idea of all of these interests coming together as one, and the marketing industry is the perfect meeting place. I am beyond thrilled to further explore my future at Optimize and develop my skills. Some of my personal passions include, travel, food, and dance. If I'm not cooking or scoping out the best restaurant in town you will probably find me running on one of the beautiful trails Redding has to offer, or taking a local ballet class.

I enjoy learning and thinking outside of the box. I have found the perfect home for my interests in web design and SEO. I really fell in to web design and development by accident. I had spent most of my life bouncing from industry to industry never really finding a career. In my search for a one I attempted radio and had a friend of mine build me a website for podcasting. It didn’t take long until I broke the website. The friend of mine was busy so I spent 48 hours sitting at my computer trying to figure out hour to fix it. After two days it was fixed, I had learned a lot, and I have been building websites and systems ever since. I feel very lucky that I found such a great career completely by accident. Web development is a career that I can really put my heart into and I am very proud of all the work that we do here at Optimize Worldwide.

I was born and raised in the Philippines till we moved, as a family, to the United States. We settled in a little town up north called White City, Oregon for 12 years. I give all the credit to MySpace in my pursuit of Web Design and Development. When I found out I can customize my own profile page using HTML and CSS. I was hooked and the rest is history. For my senior project, I created my first website using Flash. In 2011, I graduated from Southern Oregon University and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Multimedia. But that isn't my only interest. I’m also into photography, building computers, playing guitar, singing, being a life coach and writing. I moved to Redding to be a part of the Bethel Church Community. I graduated from 1st year of their Ministry School and currently enrolled in 2nd year. Though I can enjoy being by myself, there’s nothing that can bring you more joy than spending time with people and hanging out with friends. If I have one mission in life, it would be to live my life in such a way that would inspire people to pursue their dreams, motivate them into action and to step out to where they never thought possible.

Redding is my home. I have lived my whole life on the west coast, except for a brief period in Florida building my career. I enjoy working professionally with the public and helping others resolve technical problems. Am always exploring and studying. Have been using computers since a small child... computers and the internet are just so instrumental! Web development and design is the current communication medium. I am passionate about writing web and mobile applications. Have instructed programming, graphics, and software classes and have also given consultation in having a digital presence. I have always been involved in open-source and software development. Truly excited to learn new technologies and jump at opportunities to obtain fresh skills. I am eager to build upon my current knowledge and absorb new techniques here at Optimize Worldwide!

I was born and raised in Hawaii and moved up to Las Vegas when I was 16 years old with my family. It was there that I found my passion for all things music, media, & technology related. It was also in Las Vegas that I was lucky enough to find and marry the woman of my dreams. With over 16 years of experience, I have a media background akin to that of a Swiss army knife. I have an extensive background in media and web. Ranging in everything from Web Design, Directing, Producing, Editing, Cinematography along with being a Musician & Singer. One of the great things that bring me joy in life is getting to be a part of helping others make their dreams a reality whether it be through the web, video, or music. You can usually find me spending my time off by reading, outdoors, or playing video games and running alongside my wife making an impact in the fight against human trafficking.

I taught myself the basics of web design when I was 17 years old, and landed my first client as a freelancer that same year. When I graduated from high school I decided to take a break from playing with code and focused more on my illustration and fine art skills. I moved to Fargo North Dakota to take advantage of the lower cost of education and major in graphic design. However, a few years ago I decided to get back into web design and quit college all together. Now I'm back home in Northern California and couldn't be happier. I absolutely love what I and feel good that I can solve problems our clients in the process

I’m originally from the Hoosier state of Indiana, but ventured to sunny California several years ago. Somewhere in junior high or high school, I found my writing voice and took all the writing electives available. I then did a two-year program at a post-secondary institute in Pennsylvania, and, among other things, studied world literature, history, and philosophy. I’ve gained a varied work experience, starting with my first job at a library and continuing into book, music, and digital publishing. I’ve donned many hats—from cotton candy maker to helicopter flight seller to catalog producer. I love helping businesses thrive and am happy to have that opportunity at Optimize. I’m a strong advocate for free enterprise—and the web is a great avenue for that. If I’m not at work, you might find me taking a dance class, connecting with my favorite people, dabbling in music or calligraphy, writing about a cultural or social issue of some kind (since I’m sort of cause-oriented), or floating on a body of water somewhere—entertaining notions of changing the world.
