Who I Am

Erin Morelli - Web Developer (Credit: Will Waldron / Times Union)

My name is Erin Morelli and I am a Web Developer residing in the greater Boston, MA area. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in electronic media, arts, and communication, focusing on interaction design, and a co-terminal master’s degree in human-computer interaction. I moved to the Boston area in 2013 and work locally as a web developer. I have a passion for creating simple, clean user experiences.

When I’m not working I enjoy cooking, biking, surfing the web, reading a good book, as well as watching and avidly tweeting about TV. I also run Hot Wings Homebrew, my one-woman homebrewing operation, where I create and brew many varieties of beer out of my home.
