My name is Yixin Xia (pronounced as Esh-ing), and I am a web designer currently living in Austin, Texas. I finished my studies at University of Texas at Austin with a concentration in Management Information System and minor in Accounting from McCombs School of Business. I am currently working full time as software engineer in the start up industry.
I would love to utilize my creativity to work with a team of talented individuals to create innovative and beautifully designed front end products for reputable businesses. While I enjoy working in a team oriented environment, I am also an effective self-motivated independent worker. I am very flexible because I have experience in both front end web engineering and backend web development.
