Hi, I’m Acacia
Brand Experience Designer,
Web Developer & Author
Creativity is my Passion
I believe in big dreams, smart design thinking, and attention to detail. As a self-taught solopreneur and designer, my mission in life is to help others live their biggest and best dreams.
As an advocate for peace and equality, I work to support women and minorities who wish to enter the field of technology.
My first book, Uncommon Creative: The Handbook for Unicorns, was self-published in November, 2018.

I love working with other creatives to help make the smaller pieces of the journey add up to something big and meaningful. My services include technology training, coaching, brand development, and portfolio reviews for my fellow web creatives.
The path to becoming a self-employed web creative is not the same for everyone. Solopreneurs are made, not born. They are made through hard work, sacrifice, and lots and lots of failure. The key is in trusting your dreams, and re-calibrating along the way as you learn from your mistakes and successes, your wins and losses.
