Christopher Robert

Hi there. I’m Christopher and I like to make things.
I am a freelance front-end web developer based in Toronto.

Process

Whether it is with clients or fellow developers and designers I like to approach my work in a collaborative manner. I believe that working together allows us to elevate the level of the work as we all bring different strengths and passions to a project.

When building a website I work with the latest web technologies to build solid future-proof websites that look great on any size screen.

I use HTML5, CSS3 & Sass, JavaScript & jQuery and create fully customized and personalized WordPress themes to build the best site possible to meet any needs you may have.

Studying at HackerYou with Wes Bos has given me the solid foundation in writing efficient and effective code and the ability to create an outstanding project through all stages of design and development using only the best and latest techniques.

About

From cows to coding. I was once a farmer, but now I wrangle code not cows.

Though they are nearly polar opposites I felt the same excitement when I discovered coding as I did when I was farming.

When I am not creating I love to get out and explore the city, most often on my bike. I run and try to get in a few road races each season and am an enthusiastic if dilettante photographer.
