Shivika Asthana

I’m a front-end developer, a UX designer, a maker, and an extrovert! If you design lovely things and don’t want to worry about breakpoints, I think we should be friends.

If you are a small biz / crafty enterprise and need a nice looking web presence, I can help.

About Me

About shiv

The Basics

When I’m not sitting in front of my computer, you can find me either with my sewing machine or entertaining two little people who call me “mommy”. I code for my day job, and don’t mind coding for my side job, so I guess I really like coding. I also like making upcycled kids clothing, which I sell at my Etsy shop, Little Bit Kids, and jewelry, which I sell at my other Etsy shop, Shivika Asthana Jewelry Design. All in all i’m pretty effing busy, but that’s how I like it to be.

Beyond the Basics

I filmed an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba! last year with my old band, Papas Fritas, for which I sang and played the drums. I have been to Mongolia. I try and blog, but it’s just not happening. I love to meet fun and happy people but generally find friends in people who are willing to share their ups AND downs.

I love to work with people who are excited about what they do, who can laugh at themselves, and who are as busy as I am.

Disclaimer: My portfolio of work is a tad slim mainly because until now, I’ve done most of my web work for my full time job and many of the projects I’ve worked on are either proprietary apps or internal sites. My hope is to become more active in the web dev/lady web dev community. I’m working on a resources page to share along with some workflow tools.
