Leigh A. Whittier

From working at the well respected Public Policy Institute of California to opening my own consulting business in 2009, I have worked with a variety of clients large and small for over 20 years. Leading an award winning web redesign project, I always strive to provide that same planning and dedication to all my clients. Working in the online industry and managing events since the first internet boom, gave me hands-on experience with how technology affects the creative industry.
