Hi, I’m Acacia
I am a full stack web developer, brand experience designer, and visual artist with a background in photography. I first started coding in 1998, and have been developing with WordPress since 2008.
As a one woman boutique creative studio owner, I have worked with clients all over the world in education, technology, fine art, entertainment, lifestyle, journalism, fashion, healthcare, travel, startups, and the non-profit sector.
I have spoken at the AIGA Design Summit 2019 (Keynote Speaker), Meow Wolf (“The Unicorn Party”, March 2019 and “Intro to WordPress”, June 2019), several WordPress Albuquerque Meetups (SEO Secrets, Top 10 Plugins for 2020 and more), and the Digital Arts & Technology Academy in Albuquerque (Graphic Design).
I am currently an active Member of WordPress Albuquerque Meetups and was Lead Organizer, Venue Coordinator, Designer, Budget Manager, and SWAG Designer for WordCamp Albuquerque 2020 (Canceled due to COVID-19).
I believe in big dreams, smart design thinking, and attention to detail. My first book, Uncommon Creative: The Handbook for Unicorns, was self-published in November, 2018.
In my spare time, I am an all styles dancer who has studied at dance studios in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Boulder. I love Hip Hop, K Pop, and just about anything from the 80s. If I’m not making something sparkly for my Shop, I’m probably chilling in nature or playing Detroit: Become Human on PS4.
