Cristina came to A + L DEVELOPMENT as an apprentice with a background in marketing, digital video & media production and HTML. She has developed and refined her skills over the past six years and excels as a front-end developer and media consultant. She works with design leads to create or revise UI/UX wireframes, researches custom solutions using the latest tech trends and assists with both RFPs and estimates.
Cristina moonlights as the DJ on the weekends, and if she could describe her personality combining two animals it would be a crossover of a dolphin and a wild mountain cat.
