I’m Dani, a professional Web Designer with 20 years of experience and Technical Editor with 20+ years of experience for one of the largest computer textbook publishers. I have developed hundreds of web sites covering a wide spectrum of needs and requirements including responsive WordPress sites, online learning portals, enhanced landing pages, content management systems, e-commerce stores, and much more. The majority of the published titles I’ve worked on are listed in the Computing & Information Technology section at Cengage Learning.
I designed my first web site on Geocities during my college years in 1996. I tracked down an early fan page from 1999 that I designed, still alive on free servers. This web site is the HTML foundation of my web design career. Since then, I have continued to grow in the field while staying on the cutting-edge of the latest web design trends and technology.
Over 13 years ago, WordPress launched and I was on the quest to learn as much as I could about the CMS. It quickly became the most popular Content Management System in the world with hundreds of thousands of templates on millions of web sites. In editing many different templates through the years I’m constantly learning on the fly and adapting.
I typically build e-commerce shops using WooCommerce and Shopify.
I have been contracted by Cengage Learning since 2001 as a Senior Technical Editor for operating system, web design, networking, Office, and programming content. I work very closely with Authors, Development Editors, and Product Managers in helping maintain a very high standard of quality in their content, typically performing multiple passes on a book to ensure a textbook, online exam, or lab is error-free and on point.
The marriage of Web Design with my contract Tech Editing work at Cengage Learning keeps me constantly learning and testing new technology, especially in the applications and software department. I have the fortunate opportunity to work on beta software, learning upcoming and current applications before they are released to the public.
I am constantly learning, playing dual roles of Student/Professor during my Tech Edits, and am thankful for every business opportunity I get.

From Dani: Music is present in all aspects of my life, most especially my career. I always have something on when I’m coding or designing. It helps me focus. Here’s my running work mixtape including some of my favorites new and old. All of my other playlists are up on my Spotify profile, and I’m always looking for new tunes, so give me a follow if you’re on there.
