erica dreisbach

web designer + developer



I'm a freelance web designer and developer based in Chicago, working on projects from all over the US. I've coded for clients in New York, Portland (Oregon), Boston, San Francisco, Wilmington, and here in Chicago.

My obsessive email habit plus phone or Skype conferences as needed combine for an optimal remote working relationship.

I'm also available for on-site work in Chicago and the northern suburbs along the Union Pacific North (UP‑N) Metra. Especially if you have coffee.
