Hello I'm Chris, I'm a self taught front end developer based in Orange County, California.
I'm working full time as a Purchasing Manager and doing freelance web development on the side. I'm planning to transition into doing software 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'm working full time as a Purchasing Manager but with freelancing and working on personal projects, I'm learning that my real passion is in web / software development and being able to take something from being an idea to an implementation is something that I love doing.
