Christopher Ross

I am a website designer, developer, speaker, and consultant who enjoys long walks with shortcodes, functional arguments, and playing with other people’s APIs.

When I’m not developing websites (or talking about them), you can find me making apple cider, sailing, running, cycling,  traveling, or pursuing my interests as a photographer.
