About Phyllis


"I create beautifully holistic brand and website experiences for amazing small businesses, organizations, and creative individuals, right here in sunny San Diego, California.

When I'm not designing things, I'm enjoying being a mom of two awesome little girls, catching on my favorite TV shows, and feeding my very unhealthy daily Starbucks habit.

Discussing the complex yet fulfilling intersection of work, motherhood, and pursuing your inner creativity + dreams is a personal passion of mine."
