My name is April, and Creative Girl Media is the place where I get to combine my knack for design, code, and creativity with my love for teaching – and let’s be honest – rambling about the things I’m passionate about. (Which I’m pretty sure is the definition of teaching in a formal sense anyway.)
By mixing blogging, online videos, live workshops, graphic design, development, and more - I have been able to turn Creative Girl Media not only into a place where my passion is my career, but also a place where I can teach other people how to achieve that same dream.
I have two Bachelor’s degrees in Advertising and Digital Media Production, and right out of college in 2008 I started blogging. It was blogging that began my self-taught career in web design and development, and eventually I was able to quit my full time job and work from home.
Ironically, 3 years later I have just landed my absolute DREAM career at the advertising agency I always dreamed of working for. As of right now, I get to split my time between working for myself, and spending a few days a week delving into the agency world. I couldn’t be happier!
When I’m not being a workaholic, I do get to spend time with my husband of 7 years and new aussie/border mix puppy named Diego. I love running in races, doing crafts, cooking, and spending time with both our families!
