SWATI MEHTA

WEB DESIGNER | FRONT-END DEVELOPER

BASED OUT OF DURHAM, NC

ABOUT ME

Hi! I’m Swati Mehta (formerly Swati Shenoy) and I’m a Web Designer who is also passionate about code! My family and I recently (March 2017) relocated to Durham, North Carolina so that my husband could pursue his dream opportunity. I am currently in the market for full-time design positions in the Durham area and I am very excited to see where the future takes me in my design journey!

I have been designing and building websites for approximately 16 years! My design roots go way back to when I was 2 years old, drawing imaginary characters in the form of stick figures. My coding roots can be traced back to circa 2000 when I was in 10th grade and my dad brought home what must have been the largest/heaviest book to exist about building a website in HTML.

Since my days of creating obnoxious animated gifs, abusing the <marquee> tag and forcing people to listen my favorite music (embedded player without controls) on my website, I have graduated to clean design and code. I love great design and problem-solving, both of which I thoroughly enjoy in my work on a daily basis.

When I’m not designing/coding, you can find me singing and dancing with my 9 month old, playing (& winning at) Scrabble with my darling husband, whipping up something hopefully edible in the kitchen and traveling to far away lands.
