Hi, my name is Sayra Lopez and I am a
Web Developer, Designer, and Olympic Weightlifter.
Let me introduce myself
I am originally from Mexico but moved to the USA five years ago to get my B.A. in Fine Arts (with a concentration in Graphic and Web Design) from The University of Pennsylvania. I was originally a Computer Science major and I spent a year in the Engineering School, which gave me a solid foundation in object oriented programming. Although I am still doing Web Design and Development for different freelance projects, I will soon start working as a UI Designer at an exciting start-up in Philly.
Currently living in Philadelphia, I spend most of my free time doing freelance work as well as training as a competitive Olympic Weightlifter. Another one of my hobbies is going to concerts, and thus far I have seen most of my favorite bands including The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Police, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Chicago, Crosby Stills and Nash, Tegan and Sara, The Sounds, Bob Dylan, and many more!
I started doing Graphic Design when I was only 15, and I've been doing Web Development for the past three and a half years. During all these years of working and learning, I've done everything from Textile Design, to e-mail marketing campaigns. My latest ongoing projects are developing an IOS app, as well as redesigning and rebuilding the Job Opportunity Investment Network's website.
I have worked with both large organizations as well as small businesses. Here is some of my best work.

“Sayra was a dream intern and an asset to my team. She possessed amazing computer skills and knowledge that translated beautifully into textile design. Her ability to learn and tenacity was refreshing and welcome. She was an absolute pleasure and joy to work with and teach!”
