Hello, World. I’m Liz.
I’m Elizabeth Houston, or simply Liz. I’m the tech enthusiast, lifelong learner + educator, and world traveler behind E. Houston Studio. Before shifting to web design, I spent 15 years in the classroom as a computer science and ESL teacher in the U.S., South Korea, and Taiwan.
The Accidental Web Designer
After a decade in Asia, I planned to return to the U.S. to launch an online tutoring business. The popular online tutoring marketplaces left a lot to be desired, so I decided to create my own online space as an educator instead.
And once I started learning more about WordPress to support my prior knowledge of HTML and CSS from my computer science teaching career, I realized that designing and developing websites was actually what I wanted to spend my time on!
Bringing Your Brand to Life Online
As a frequent internet user (okay, maybe a little too frequent), I’ve had the chance to see what works and what doesn’t when it comes to user experience.
I’m all about helping fellow entrepreneurs carve out their own online spaces, not just exist on social media or someone else’s platform. I put my heart and soul into highlighting your unique brand on your website.
And the teacher in me? She’s there, guiding you through any tech hurdles you encounter while bringing your dream website to life.
Blending Technical and Creative Passions
When I realized that my skills could reach beyond the classroom walls, the fun part of building a business began!
E. Houston Studio, my fully-online web design studio, lets me combine my knack for problem-solving with my eye for design to help educators, coaches, and creative entrepreneurs like you, no matter where in the world you might be.
Stressed About Tech?
I wholeheartedly believe that every digital entrepreneur should have a unique online platform to showcase their talents and connect with their audience.
That’s why I’ve dedicated myself to making tech less intimidating and more accessible.
My approach is straightforward and collaborative. Together we’ll design a digital space that you’ll love sharing with customers, clients, family, and friends.
“I run my own website and contacted Liz as I was receiving various issues that needed to be addressed on my site audit. As someone new to websites and maintenance, Liz took the time to explain in detail what the issues meant and ways to rectify the situations regarding the flagged areas. I was then able to apply the knowledge learned and fix the problems on my own. It’s one thing to have it fixed for you, but when you are given the knowledge to fix your own issues it is even better, since site maintenance is common for websites. Liz was professional, understanding, patient, and extremely helpful and it was a pleasure receiving some of her knowledge.”
