About Me

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to visit my site. My name is Michelle Lawson and I love building websites.

Over the past 15 years of my technical career, I've had the pleasure of working for several companies in various businesses, from Microsoft, environmental engineering, retail, software development and electronics. Collaborating with stakeholders, project managers and developers, I localize, create and edit webpages on global websites in different languages. In my spare time, I study programming languages such as JavaScript, PHP, Python and C languages.

Prior to my web content management work, I was a technical support representative, supporting Windows, Lotus Notes, VOIP, multi function printers among other technologies.

Currently residing in Seattle, WA, my adopted home, I am seeking a new opportunity in web production. I have basic HTML and CSS skills as you can tell from this hand coded, hosted website but I want to be able to do more in web development, in addition to web production. Like many other folks in the web development arena, I am adept at self-study.

On a personal note, I enjoy camping, nature, working on personal web development projects and spending time with my family. I also love to cook, but the jury is still out on whether I'm any good at it. :-)

What am I passionate about? Human connection. Kindness and tolerance for others. If we all treated each other as we want to be treated, the world would be a better place. This passion serves me well in my career, as it results in positive pleasant interactions with most of my coworkers. It allows me to practice patience, both with personalities and workload. You know that coworker who is bubbly and upbeat, even when the pressure is on and everyone else is stressed out? Yeah, I'm that girl.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with managers and staff of several types of businesses: manufacturing, environmental engineering, retail, sales and software development. It is a pleasure to work with others towards a common goal.

I would love to discuss opportunities with you!
