about me

Web designer. Strategist. Doer of awesome things.

Hi there! I’m Trista, a fun-loving, focused and driven editor and administrative professional making a living working with non-profit organizations and arts-based businesses.

I currently own and operate a web design company called Magpie Design Co. where I create great online presences for artists and arts-based businesses.

I’m also the owner and publisher of an online film magazine called Toronto Film Scene.
