Hello! I’m Christopher, I’m 30 years old and live in Chester (UK). I am a front-end web developer specialising in creating websites built with beautifully clean coded HTML and CSS using responsive techniques and progressive enhancement for an adaptive usable experience. I also dabble in ASP.NET and PHP, using Umbraco (I’m an Umbraco Certified Developer, both Level 1 and 2) and WordPress daily.
I have over a decade of professional experience in the industry and have worked for and alongside digital agencies both in the United Kingdom and abroad – the furthest away being in New Zealand (the time difference wasn’t ideal for update meetings on Skype but the project was worth it and went smoothly for all involved).
Throughout projects I test on a multitude of devices and have used various assistive technologies including eye-tracking which has proven invaluable for understanding and optimising the decisions users make while browsing, particularly on eCommerce sites where the primary focus is to increase conversions.
Outside of web development my main passion is motorcycles, I’ve owned a few bikes over the years and currently ride a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R750 and have taken various trips over to continental Europe on it (taking in parts of Austria, Andorra, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and Switzerland) which included riding many alpine passes and mountain roads as well as blasting around the Nürburgring at silly speeds. Closer to home I enjoy taking it to Oulton Park to do the odd track day. I also enjoy hiking and sports such as squash and tennis, swimming and mountain biking, and have recently started to learn to skydive and fly an aeroplane.
