About Christopher Ross

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 Ottawa 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. I’m committed to producing the worlds best apple cider.
