My name is Brad Saverino, but most call me Savi (hence the name Savi Web Design).  I am 26 years old and have done everything from banking to paramedicine to computer science.  I began building websites about 5 years ago and found that my Computer Science degree (from Benedictine University) has given me an edge in the world of web design.  While pursuing this degree, I became involved with a company called Modern Muscle – an automotive specialty shop.  It was here that I was given the opportunity to clean up a website that had previously been made for them.  At that point, it was clear that I didn’t just enjoy building websites, but I was also good at it!  With the edge that my Computer Science degree gave me I could do pretty much anything one could think of in the realm of the world wide web!  Previous to Modern Muscle I used Photoshop quite a bit as a hobby. Because of this experience, when I took the position at the shop, it really gave me the opportunity to hone my skills creating ad’s, business cards, graphics, and content for social media.  After using Photoshop every day I become familiar with different styles and techniques that you will see in use on my websites (like the moving gears in the background).  I have always been one that enjoys creating and fixing things.  It is always a pleasure to take something that is a hobby and turn it into a job. I strongly believe that it is one thing to work with someone who is good at what they do, but it is a completely different thing to work with someone who enjoys what they do.
