Hari fell in love with web design at an early age. She has since been fascinated by the intersection of art, technology, psychology, and human behavior. As a committed lifelong learner, she has continually honed and updated her skills over the years. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design and certifications in Web Design, UX Design, Agile Methodologies, trauma-informed care, generative AI prompting, and more. Hari grew up in Brazil's Atlantic Rainforest, which fostered a deep connection with nature. She is a Denver/ Boulder Climate Designers Chapter Co-Leader. When not helping clients with branding and design, Hari loves spending time with loved ones, cooking, making music, swimming, and basking in the sun (preferably on a beach).

An avid purpose-driven entrepreneur, Will runs a nonprofit and two businesses that offer services to help promote personal growth and connection with nature. He has a BS in Physics and developed an interest in programming which led him to become a full-stack developer.
