My name is Ashley.
I was born and raised in Silicon Valley, and the new world of computers has always been a big part of my life. One of most memorable memories from my childhood was the loud sounds of air conditioners in a room full of supercomputers running at maximum speed at my dad's work. I remembered going into my dad's work and seeing hundreds of network cables all wound up and plugged into multiple devices. Though I was heavily surrounded by the technology of tommorrow, I had no interest in cables and circuits. My interests were more centered on drawing, coloring and art. I spent most of my free time drawing and had developed a decent talent for free handing. Later, I found an interest in photography when I took my first photography class in college. I enjoyed the art of taking photos and had a creative eye for it. However, photography and art wasn't my pursuit in life. I later found it to be computer science, after taking my first class in Java. I loved the thrill of finishing a program you'ved worked hours and hours on. Later I found a love for designing websites. One of the things I love most about creating your own website is how there are unlimited things you can do on your websites (i.e. animations, play a video, use google's and instagrams's API REST to search for photos tagged in San Diego). This versatility allows one to be very creative with their website.
I enjoyed swimming and competing on my high school's swim team. The refresshing feeling after swim practice was always refreshing and a great stress reliever from school.
One of my favorite hikes is the Lands end in San Francisco. It a very easy hike that give many great photo opportunies and I love the great views this trail gives of the Golden Gate bridge. One hiking trail that I dream on doing someday is Mission Peak. I heard it's a very challenging uphill hike. So I'm working on prepping myself for that hike so I don't faint.
I love shopping for all kind of things. My favorite things to shop for are trendy new clothes, makeup, and anything to make organizing my belonings efficent.
I enjoy spending leisure time in applying makeup to create a well blended, contoured, natural look. I take pride in how I look and one of my favorite makeup brands at the moment is Bare Minerals.
Currently, my favorite food to make is creme brulee.
I enjoy working on the style and look on the front end.
