Agency Owner & Web Developer
Erika Sanborne is the Web developer and agency owner at Our Future Site, a division of Erika Sanborne Media LLC .
Back when Jay Leno officially took over for Johnny Carson, and the expert consensus for how to avoid the Michaelangelo virus was to go ahead and turn your PC off every year for the day on March 6, Erika was an undergrad at University of Massachusetts, enrolled in the Applied Mathematics – Computer suboption degree program.
She left college to enlist in the military, where she was a Telecommunications Specialist and fell in love with code. After the military, she took C programming (in 1998) and many more math and tech courses, later switching majors and career pathways, shifting web development into what would remain a solid, lifelong hobby.
This hobby eventually grew into steady freelance opportunities which allowed her to keep her knowledge current over the next two decades. For example, while teaching full time, in 2013 she patented S-Stats™, an award-winning native and mobile web app which she created to support students in her university statistics classes.
Before moving away from New England in 2015, she created Pocket Beach, an app that let her wife take the beach with her to the Upper Midwest, and she launched Pocket Beach on Google Play Store and on the Kindle App Store. You can see Pocket Beach and a few other legacy apps still available on Erika’s Google Play Store.developer page.
Today, in addition to WordPress development, Erika produces digital graphics, videos, animated explainers, and does select portraiture work and product photography for clients through Erika Sanborne Media LLC. Her other hats include: long-time math and psychological science educator, ordained UCC clergy, disabled veteran for peace, disability justice advocate, population health and disability policy researcher, and sociology PhD candidate. All at the same time. Yeah. She keeps busy.
