Jennifer Coyle, Hello Brio

Who am I? I'm Jenn (Jennifer Coyle Palandro), a Philadelphia-based web designer and developer. I’m an ENFJ who thrives on learning new things, being a zen Type-A, writing, and teaching.

Fast fun facts

  • I have a baby. I call him Beans. We’re expecting a Ziggy come March ‘19.

  • I live with said baby and my husband Chris.

  • I have a degree in Interior Design; I don't use it.

  • I'm mildly allergic to peanuts but it doesn’t stop me from eating them.

  • I play the ukulele. Or at least I think often about playing the ukulele.

  • Fueled by burritos.

  • I've watched The Office at least 4x through and could have a quote-off with anyone.

Things that rock my socks: minimalism, running, reading, indie music and films. Want to know more about the lady behind the blog?

I occasionally use affiliate links and may earn a small commission if you use my link. That money will support my blogging efforts. And will feed my tiny baby. 😂

So click on it if you want, or just use your old pal Google and find the link yourself. I don't care.

Overall, I only ever talk about products or services I've used. I will always give my honest opinion.
