Chris’s journey into web development started after getting a copy of “Make Your Own Web Page For Kids (Scholastic, 1998)” from his school’s Scholastic book fair. Shortly after that, he was using his newfound skills to customize and tweak his personal Angelfire sites as much as he could before diving deeper into programming.
In college at the The University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, he dusted off these skills again after being hired as a part-time web developer. It was here that he fell headlong into WordPress, and has found a home in it ever since.
When he’s not writing code, Chris is passionate about Irish Music and can be found bumming around Irish Music events in some part of the world or another, including being active in the local Milwaukee Irish Festival.
