Spooky Adventures from Scream Queen to Web Queen

Once upon a spooky time, when I was just 16, I tiptoed into the creepy world of haunted houses, drawn by the excitement of Halloween. My journey began at Creepers Haunted House in Marietta, GA, where I discovered my love for scaring people. Those early nights at Creepers shaped me into a budding Scream Queen.

As I grew in the haunted world, a surprising talent emerged – web design. At 16, I started my own haunted house web design company, creating eerie online experiences. Soon, I was designing websites for industry legends like Larry Kirchner and Jeff Londos, honing my skills and making spooky connections.

My fascination with Halloween extended to digital marketing, where I helped haunted attractions, destinations, ghost tour companies, and paranormal investigators promote their bone-chilling experiences. Life threw me a curveball, and I had to take a break, but the haunting world always lingered in my heart.

Now, I’m back in the haunt spotlight, fully dedicated to my craft. From scream queen to web queen, I’m excited to create immersive websites, offer top-notch digital marketing, and collaborate with haunt industry giants. My journey through the haunted house industry has been a chilling adventure, and I’m committed to keeping the spirit of Halloween alive online. So, when the moon rises and shadows dance, remember there’s a digital sorcerer ready to bring your haunt to life – me.

Why I Love Working with Spooky Stuff

In the obscure realms where shadows dance and tales of the unusual unfold, my journey begins—a journey fueled by an unwavering passion for the mysterious. From an early fascination with the unknown to a perpetual craving for the spirit of Halloween, my dedication to the odd and obscure is more than a professional choice; it’s a deeply ingrained part of who I am. The peculiar stories that send shivers down the spine and the enchantment of Halloween aren’t mere interests—they are the driving forces that guide my work in crafting digital experiences for haunted attractions, ghost tour companies, and paranormal investigators.

In the heart of the odd and obscure, I find a canvas to express my creativity and a stage to tell stories that linger in the minds of those who dare to explore the unconventional. This isn’t just about marketing; it’s about infusing every day with the magic of Halloween, creating memorable experiences that transcend the ordinary. Beyond the digital landscape, my mission extends to building a community of the curious—a space where appreciation for the eerie and the bizarre unites individuals who share a passion for the unexplored.

I do it because the odd and obscure beckon me to challenge norms, blend tradition with innovation, and pioneer new ways to celebrate the extraordinary. It’s a calling to embrace the peculiarities that make life interesting, weaving narratives that defy the mundane and inviting others to join me on a journey of discovery. In the odd and obscure, I discover not just a niche, but a profound connection to a realm where the extraordinary is celebrated, cherished, and brought to life through digital enchantment.
