the long about
Hello, I’m Taylor Nowotny. I’m an independent web designer / developer living in the verdant Pacific Northwest USA.
Before I was a designer I was a soldier. I trained at the intensive Defense Language Institute to become an Afghan Pashto linguist. I graduated with honors and went to work at the National Security Agency (NSA) where I served as part of an elite team fighting the proliferation of explosives in Afghanistan. It was an exciting career but I eventually left the Army in pursuit of independence.
After the military I went to school to study design & philosophy. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Evergreen State College.
Now I use my wizard computer skills to help small businesses grow on the internet. I believe small businesses are vital to a healthy community and economy. So I work hard to give them the advantages of thoughtful design, cutting edge web technology, and the latest techniques in accessibility and customer experience.
My goal is to bring an exceptional standard of quality to the websites I design, as my way of building the kind of community that I’m proud to be a part of.
