Agency Owner & Web Developer
Erika Sanborne is the Web developer and agency owner at Our Future Site, a division of Erika Sanborne Media.
Back when Jay Leno officially took over for Johnny Carson, and the expert consensus was to avoid the Michaelangelo virus by not turning on your PC every year on March 6, Erika was an undergrad at Univ. of Massachusetts, accepted into the Applied Mathematics – Computer suboption BS 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, but switched majors and career pathways, shifting web development into what would remain a solid, lifelong hobby.
This hobby eventually grew into freelance opportunities which allowed her to keep her knowledge current over the years. For example, while teaching full time, in 2013 she patented S-Stats™, a native and mobile web app which she had 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 for Android and on the Kindle App Store. You can see a few legacy apps still available on Erika’s Google Play Store.page.
Today, in addition to WordPress development, Erika produces digital graphics, videos, animated explainers, and portraiture work. 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.
