My name is Christopher Ross, I make a living by creating beautiful, usable, powerful, creative websites around the world. I’m obsessed with the latest W3C standards, semantic code, and creating search engine friendly online solutions that’ll last for upgrades to come. My websites are hand coded for optimal results, and often use the WordPress content management system to help low-technology users produce website content without relying on me.
I live in Port Dalhousie Ontario, and build websites for a living. When I’m not designing websites, you can usually find me with my camera at a local meet-up, nature event, or traveling on another adventure.
You can find me online at:
- Instagram, where I share terribly dorking photos;
- LinkedIn, if you’d like to see my resume;
- WordPress.org, where I posted some (now discontinued) plugins;
All about me
I live and work in Port Dalhousie Ontario but I was born in Halifax Nova Scotia, and grew up in the Niagara region of Southern Ontario. Over the past two decades I’ve had the privilege of living and working in Fredeicton New Brunswick, Toronto Ontario, San Diego, and New Orleans.
I’m a passionate supporter of open source projects, helping people learn to program, and developing cool software.
Work and experience
For the most updated look at what I’m doing, visit my LinkedIn profile where I tend to update my resume regularly. While I’m a well rounded developer by trade, I’m specifically a full stack LAMP developer with an focussed niche in the WordPress CMS environment. I routinely use WordPress to develop:
- scalable web solutions for the print and media industry;
- rapid development for online web applications;
- membership driven community websites;
- iOS and mobile friendly application design;
I am currently living in Port Dalhousie, Canada and am available for freelance work.
Supporting the WordPress Community
You can usually find me on one of a multitude of WordPress related forums, either on Facebook or the WordPress.org website helping new developers learn how to use the software. I also speak regularly at WordPress events in Canada and the US, including WordCamp Ottawa, WordCamp Toronto, and WordCamp Montreal.
WordPress.TV, the official website for WordPress and WordCamp events has several of my talks online including a presentation from WordCamp Hamilton discussing membership websites.
I’ve contributed dozens of plugins in the WordPress ecosystem, helped update the Core of WordPress, published themes to WordPress.com, and written dozens of tutorials for the WordPress community.
