Caprina Valentine,
Designer / Photographer

Hello, I'm Caprina Valentine. I'm an award-winning website developer with over 16 years experience developing high-quality websites for clients in a range of industries on Vancouver Island and beyond.

I began in March 1998, at the age of 15, training people on computers when the Internet was just blossoming into the realm of mass awareness. At the time, I remember wanting to be a lawyer when I grew up. I even went so far as to do my high school work experience at a law firm and when all the lawyers there asked me what I currently did for work, I said, "I teach people to use computers." And you know what they said? ..."Stick with computers."

So I picked up web technology and never looked back. I am completely self-taught in the realm of website development and internet technology, before there were courses and you had to just read documentation. I did take two years of business-related courses at the University of Victoria, but continue to learn independently, having since gained extensive knowledge in the areas of consumerism psychology, marketing, and user-interface design.

I enjoy my job. It's creative and challenging. I meet good people doing interesting and amazing things. And I feel that my design style is able to evolve, and my technical abilities to expand, with every new project. Technology is a wonder. I enjoy learning new ways of solving problems. True to my nature, I am continually reading, learning, testing, and seeking new information and developing practical solutions for my clients.

Currently I live on Vancouver Island, British Columbia's capital city, rich with arts and culture. I believe in supporting local Vancouver Island businesses, events, and the arts scene. I also enjoy photography, cooking, yoga and playing drums.

Volunteer

I make it a personal mandate to volunteer my services for at least one project per year. In the past, I have helped out the following groups:
