Hi, I’m Christopher.
I’m a front-end web developer and designer living in San Francisco. I build great websites for my clients with Craft, ExpressionEngine®, and Wordpress. I sometimes write about UX, development, games, or tech.
I’ve been leading front-end agency teams for almost a decade and assisting teams frequently in matters of Information Architecture.
I love being given a problem with a website and then figuring out how to solve it. Contact me if you think you’ve got one of those!
What I’ve Done
I’ve worked on projects ranging from small boutique websites to ecommerce solutions for national food brands to recently building a webapp for the City of New York, always focusing on information architecture as well as all the minutae of front-end development. If you’d like to see some of my work, get in touch with me.
Who I’ve Helped
I take pride in a job well done. I know it isn’t my client’s job to understand what happens with web development or design. Some of my past clients and colleagues have been kind enough to recommend me in the past.
I’m grateful to have worked with Chris Kennedy. As a contractor for my team at Blue State Digital, Chris helped develop the ACCESS website for NYC, a multilingual, mobile-first Wordpress site that helps New Yorkers find city benefits and services. I am immensely proud of the result, which is largely attributed to Chris’s tireless dedication to our goals and proclivity for innovative problem solving.
We all hope to work with Chris again. He contributed enormously to both client work and our office community, sharing his tech expertise and all kinds of insights relevant to our agency’s progressive mission.

Chris is an asset to any project or company he is involved with. He keeps his design and development skills sharp with the same hard work and enthusiasm for learning that nearly all successful web developers have.
