Meet the Designer

Hi, I'm Cristina!

The Lovely Geek is a one-woman web design studio based in the Sacramento area of California specializing in custom Showit and WordPress websites for female-focused small businesses.

If your previous designer abandoned you with an outdated site or you're the lacking design skills to bring your vision to life that’s where I come in!

I work with women-owned businesses in the service-based industry helping their brands shine. I'm here to transform your brand needs into stunning visual experiences that set you up for success and turns your followers into customers.

Work With Me

It All Started in High School...

At the age of 15, I started teaching myself how to code and design websites. Little did I know this would start me down the path of a career I didn't even think possible.

What started as a hobby led to pursuing a degree and eventually a full-time occupation.

I freelanced through college, and by the time I graduated I was already working for my first agency. I gained a ton of experience, adding project management, print design, and social media marketing to my repertoire.

After nearly a decade of working for agencies, I decided to return to freelancing in order to be at home with my daughter. I worked at the big agencies long enough to see how I can help the small businesses. I love the clients I work with, and the best part is I get to spend my time doing what I enjoy for a living.

I volunteer my time as a WordCamp speaker as well as an occasional mentor to design students. When I'm not creating websites, I can most likely be found on my Peloton bike, talking clean beauty with my sister, nerding out over tech with my husband, or chasing my two littles around the house.

My Values

In my home and my business, the way I operate is simple: be a good human. Everyone is welcome here.

Black Lives Matter. Science is real, and news is not fake. Love is love and always wins. Women's rights are human rights and have the right to control their own bodies. Humans are not illegal. Kindness is everything.

Compassion, fairness, and the willingness to do better is at the heart of everything I do. Hate has no home here. If you don’t stand for basic human rights then I’m probably not a good fit for your project.
