leslie portrait

My name is Leslie Robertson and I am a web developer and designer.

After I graduated from Parsons School of Design, I worked for Martha Stewart for 3.5 years, designing and facilitating the production of a wide range of holiday merchandise products. During my time there, I also oversaw part of a massive file-archiving project through which I found a serious love for databases and information management.

I took the plunge and quit my day job to pursue a career in tech down in Austin, TX, and ever since I've been developing websites and designing branding packages with Dos Mundos Creative.
