The mischievous (if this picture is any evidence) Kristin Wille.

After four years of agency employment and four years of freelancing as a web designer and developer, Kristin has learned a lot of lessons, mostly the hard way. She gets asked a lot of questions. How do you get started making websites? How do you get work as a freelancer? How did you last 4 years working at home in your PJs? Why did you quit freelancing and go back to employment, weren’t you living the dream?

Kristin will share all her battlefield-approved tips for surviving life as a contractor, finding work with an agency, and how to become rich and famous in 5 easy steps.

Our Presenter, Kristin Wille

Kristin is a web developer at Daylight Studio in Southeast Portland, where she hacks away at front end code and dabbles in PHP. She also co-hosts the PushPull Podcast, a semi-wildly popular show about working in the web industry.

When she’s not staring at computers or talking about them, you’ll find her on her mountain bike and enjoying the Northwest outdoors with her two dogs.
