Technology and Online Media Professional

About Me

Michelle M. Nguyen is a writer and web developer, often credited online as "Michelle Mista". An IT professional with an insatiable love of the written word, she decided to combine her two loves in 2008 by turning her passion for technology into a career as an online media professional whose skills include writing and social media.


As a writer, she specializes in technology for small business and home. Her work has appeared on national outlets like Salon.com and various print outlets. A blogger long before the term "blog" came into common usage, and a WordPress user since it forked from b2/cafelog Michelle decided to turn her weekend tinkering with WordPress into a more solid offering. In 2012, she began offering WordPress development and administration services, along with social media consulting to small businesses, non-profits and individuals.
