ABOUT ME

Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.

Oscar Wilde, Playwright and Poet

Tamara Elias

Web Designer, Writer & Content Creator

I have an eclectic career history from identifying national security threats and verifying people's identities to writing restaurant reviews and working on a cruise ship.

How the heck did I end up designing websites?

I have both a creative side and a very analytical side - I realized that web design satisfies both! And, it allows me to do my job from anywhere - a bonus for the traveller in me! In fact, you may see me on a sunny day working on a boat in the Burrard Inlet.

 

I have worked for and with many industries, in both the public and private sector, from Travel and Retail to Immigration and Trade. I have designed websites for Food Caterers and Beauty Salons to Spiritual Coaches and Accountants. The variety of fields that I have worked with have made me insightful and intuitive to people's varying nuances and needs. 

As I started to build websites for small businesses, my clients would then ask me to help them with other things for their business...set up their Google Business Profile, help them with social media, brainstorm strategy ideas etc.

And that is how I got to where I am today! I am an entrepreneur at heart and I love playing a small role in helping small business owners along their journey.

Interesting Facts:​

  • I used to play the accordion and saxophone

  • KLM Royal Dutch Airlines added an image of me and my husband to the outside design on one of their planes - yes, my face was on a plane!

  • I think peanut butter and dark chocolate is the best combo ever
