About Me

Hello, I’m Babak. I’ve Been Building Websites For Over 4 Years!

        I look at a website as a living object; the more people feed it, the more it grows. To keep feeding it continuously, people need to be able to maintain their website on their own, which is exactly my goal. People should have the option to avoid calling their web developer for simple tasks such as changing a picture or text. My product guarantees that you will be able to adapt your interface on your own!

        I came to the U.S alone as a refugee, almost 4 years ago, and began building my life from extreme poverty (homelessness). This business helps me to pay for my tuition and expenses. I am studying computer science at the University of California Santa Cruz, and I am a dreamer. I dream about changing the world, but I just don’t simply dream, I actively work hard to achieve my dream; projects I’m working on include Creative edge2 which is a program that advocates the entrepreneurship in the UCSC community and I am also interning at Baskin school of engineering working towards increasing the number of women in the STEAM field. It’s an honor for me to serve you and help your business grow.

My Vision

        I would like to see a world that everybody could share their ideas using internet with each other and make their content interactive enough that grabs their visitor’s attention to the subject that they are trying to put out there. I also envision a world that people maintain their website on their own without any knowledge of coding. To make that happened I use tools such as WordPress and Drupal.

I believe design is a process

I prototype and iterate

I design and build
