Erica Shoonmaker - Web Developer

San Francisco, CA, United States

I'm a web designer with over 20 years experience making websites, and I've been working with WordPress since it came out in 2003.


I'm a web designer specializing in WordPress-based sites. Blogs, portfolios, web shops, etc.—you name it, you can do it with WordPress!

I also have experience designing book covers and interiors. See my Gallery for examples of this kind of work.
