WANT MORE OF THE STORY?
Born and raised in California, Elliot (she / her) grew up surrounded by hardworking small business owners and creatives. She narrowed escaped the grim fields of Bakersfield by moving to the Bay Area in 2001.
In 2008, she decided that rain clouds and gloom were a good look and relocated to Portland, Oregon. For seven years, she haunted local coffee shops and bookstores with grade-A hipster vibes. Denim, nose piercings, and kombucha homebrews to the front.
During this time, she found herself increasingly building websites for small business and nonprofits around town. In 2013, she launched Studio Anansi to formalize her sidehustle into an IRL job. Her website design time promptly tanked, as she juggled the kajillion other components of running a small business. Several months later, the kinks were finally worked out and Studio Anansi was officially underway!
Since then, Elliot has built a team and worked with small businesses and nonprofits throughout the world. They build custom websites and bespoke digital strategies on WordPress, specializing in strategic website development and growth.
“My fam is my inspiration. My mom has worked so hard to start her own business and take care of her employees. When I’m running on fumes at the end of a long project, I ask myself…would I be happy with this level of service for her?
I aim to give all my clients 100% family-level service, 100% of the time.”
