who I am...

Hello I'm Chris, I'm a self taught front end developer based in Orange County, California.

I create performant and responsive websites and apps with JavaScript / ES6 mostly using React.js or with a react based front end framework such as Gatsby.js or Next.js.

I have three years experience with JavaScript / ES6, two years developing SPA's with React.js, and four years with HTML / CSS; I also have a working understanding of Python and TypeScript and am currently exploring Clojure.

my background...

TL;DR Made basic HTML and CSS webpages as a kid, did some eCommerce work for a while at work, and recently transitioned to doing front end development full time.

a long time ago... I've always had an interest in web technologies which started with making embarrasing geocities pages and myspace themes for my friends as a kid and has continued with various levels of involvment either in work or on side projects.

not so long ago... I was involved with 🚀 launching the eCommerce site at the company where I worked, I collaborated with an outside consulant to integrate the CMS with our ERP system.

Managed the site for the first three years after launch, updating product pages, creating HTML/CSS landing pages, on page SEO, and marketing emails.

After that time I was promoted to a different role in the company which while having a lot of positives, it sadly pulled me away from the web side of the business.

currently... I recently left my job as a purchasing manager started a new job doing front end development full time.
