A few things to know about me

Name: Dana Rosamund Teagle
Pronouns: she/her
Occupation: Web/software developer
Location: Tkaronto, Ontario
Astrology: Libra/Leo/Scorpio


Making neat things on the internet was a hobby for most of my life before it became my career in 2020. These days, I primarily build websites and applications for businesses, freelance professionals, and non-profit organizations.

I'm passionate about accessible equity-centered design, free and open-source software, and data privacy, as well as projects that intersect with advocacy (particularly for queer and trans communities). Please feel free to check out my most recent resume.


Before I started coding full time, I spent years cooking in vegetarian restaurants, managing caf├ęs, creating graphics for social media, and editing short films. I studied botany for a time, and I also have experience consulting on technical solutions for small businesses and leading workshops for 2SLGBTQ+ folks.

I'm also a lifelong science-fiction nerd, former comic book collector, and current cassette tape collector. When I'm away from my keyboard, chances are I'm making playlists, reading library books, watching movies, or walking around the city taking photos of pigeons.

Some projects I've worked on


Sorry, but this page isn't working right now. It uses jQuery to inject content, so if you have JavaScript disabled in your browser, that's probably the reason (and honestly I respect your choice). If that's not the case however, please check back later.

A list of the services I offer

I'm currently taking on freelance projects for web and software design, development, and auditing. Please feel free to reach out and we can discuss your goals, deadline, and budget in more detail. I'd love to help make your dream website a reality!


I develop all of my projects with consideration for responsiveness (functioning seamlessly across devices), search engine optimization, and web accessibility, and I also rigorously test for usability and performance before launch to ensure every potential user gets the ideal browsing experience.

I've described some potential scenarios below to help you get a sense of what your project might be and what work it could entail. These five (5) options are grouped into three (3) sections based on size and scope: consultation, small projects, and medium-to-large projects. However, every project is unique, so there may be flexibility in how we approach your specific needs. I'm always happy to discuss custom solutions that fit your budget and timeline.

Consultation

  • Website audit

    I do a full review of the design, layout, content, and functionality of your existing website, and walk you through what you're doing well and what you can do better. Possible suggested changes could include: increasing accessibility compliance, ensuring all of your content is written in a clear and concise manner, and improving the user experience (UX).

Small projects

  • Design & build

    I design a custom site with 1-3 self-hosted web pages. If your site has content that will rarely change, I build the site with static and hard-coded content. If you foresee yourself making frequent updates, I build the site using a Content Management System (CMS), allowing you to update your own content as needed.

  • Site migration

    I re-create the layout and content of an existing site you've previously built using a web builder such as Squarespace or Wix. I provide updated designs for 1-3 self-hosted web pages, and build it with either static content or a CMS. The migrated sites I develop tend to have lower monthly costs than most web builder plans.

Medium-to-large projects

  • Design & build

    I design a multi-page custom website, and build it with advanced functionality (e.g., calendars, mapping, animated graphics, user verification, etc.) using a combination of a web development framework and a CMS.

  • Design & build (+ e-commerce)

    I design a multi-page custom website, and build it with advanced functionality (including e-commerce) using a combination of a web development framework, a headless storefront, and a CMS.
