I’m Maren – like Karen with an M. I’m an experienced California based full-time employee and freelancer specializing in digital design and development for websites, email campaigns and social media. I’m also experienced in CMS administration on Joomla, WordPress and Zendesk. When I get bored, I dabble in server-side development, MySQL, Google APIs, instructional design, graphic design and photography. Yeah, my experience and love for lynda.com and Udemy have taken me in vast directions in my career lifetime. For fun, I like to run very, very, very far.
