Hello, my name is Christopher Ross, and this is my URL.

I first created thisismyurl.com in 2001 while working as the webmaster for Corel Corporation. I didn’t know what I would do with it at the time but it’s allowed me to explore the web. These days, I use it to pursue my passions for WordPress, teaching and helping small business owners understand online marketing.

Since starting the site, I’ve watched the Internet grow but the basics of building great websites have remained the same. Understand your customer.

After leaving Corel in 2001, I ran Rodonic for nearly 15 years. Then I sold my WordPress based newspaper software and returning to my passion for creating small usable websites.

In that time, I’ve worked for Canada’s largest companies including Corel and BlackBerry, Tim Hortons, Sleep Country, and Postmedia. At Postmedia, I built several of news sites from the Vancouver Sun, and the Montreal Gazette, to dozens of papers across Canada.

Since then, I’ve studied accounting and marketing, created newspapers for Bloomberg and several financial blogs for StockTwits. While I’m best known for my work in WordPress, I’m a full stack PHP developer.

You can also find me online at a variety of social media services from Instagram and Twitter, to 500px and LinkedIn.

Currently, I’m available for consulting work in the Toronto area, and live in St. Catharines Ontario. When I’m not working, you can find me on a sailboat in Port Dalhousie, drinking coffee, or wood working.

If you’d like to get in touch with me, please feel free to use my email or connect with with via my Contact page.
