I'M KARISA

Hi, I am Karisa
a lifelong learner and Software Engineer from AZ

Hey there, thanks for taking the time to check out my site. I am a passionate software engineer, developer, artist, and lifelong student living in sunny Arizona. In the last year I received a Bachelor's of Computer Science with a focus in Cybersecurity, worked as a Research Assistant for ASU's Cybersecurity program, interned with USAA over the 2020 summer where I worked with react and full stack development, and worked as a front-end developer for DesignAShirt.com.

I design and develop websites, logos, creatives, and I have a passion to program and interest for cybersecurity and devops. All in all, I love working together with passionate individuals to make things that matter.

what I do

My Services

01

Website Creation & Maintenance

I create websites using either html/css, node.js, Shopify, or WordPress depending on a clients needs. All sites are modern, responsive, and SEO optimized.

05

Programming

I program in Python, C++, C, Java, and Javascript. I have completed several projects including building my own Blockchain, ABAC engine, and compiler in C++. I have internship experience creating applications in react and database design for a full stack experience.

03

Logo Design

A logo is a vital component of a business and thus, a website. I will work with you to make a logo you can be proud to stand behind (and put on a shirt!).

02

Website Creatives

A website lacks impact without images. I do custom banner, icon, and backgrounds to really make your website stand out from the crowd.

04

Visual Design

I do UX and UI design for frontend and backend processes using Adobe XD, Illustrator, and Photoshop. I create sitemaps, wireframes and page mockups for the communication process.

06

Digital Commissions

A not so secret love of mine is digital painting and illustration. If you like my style I take commissions through my contacts page here or blog.
