About Me

Ahoy, Me Hearties!

Meet Heather!

I am skilled as a front end developer, back end developer and graphic designer. I love what I do and treat every website I develop or work on as if it were my very own. I love connecting with different clients and agencies from all over the world and providing them with the one-to-one services that are hard to find in the web development world.

If I’m not able to solve a problem for my clients, I’ll always do my best to find someone who can.

About Me

On my free time I like to write poetry and am actively trying to finish a novel. I enjoy living in the pacific northwest with all it’s great family oriented activities such as hiking, biking, camping, swimming and picking huckleberries. It sure is a beautiful place to raise my children.

Our newest hobby is raising honey bee’s. With the help of our really cool neighbor, we are all learning together how to do our little part for mother nature in maintaining the ecosystem so it can flourish for future generations.

Why The Name Ravenous Raven Design?

I get asked this all the time. I have a deep love for poetry and one of my favorite poems (which I have memorized) is The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. Ravenous, well, just cause it sounds cool together. Am I right? Okay, how bout because I have a ravenous hunger for knowledge and competition 🙂

From a marketing standpoint, it’s also good because people remember  unique names more than they do the generic ones.
