My name is Irene. I'm a web developer with extensive experience in photography and video production. I've operated Small Wonder Media, an independent media company, for over eight years. I'm eager to use my photography and video production background to create visually engaging websites. I took the background photo and you can find my photo and video work at Small Wonder Media.
