About Chris

Hi, my name is Chris, but you probably already inferred that from the domain name. Since you’re on this particular page, I’m assuming you’d like to know a little more about me. I’ll do my best with a bunch of short sentences.

About me

I live on the lovely Big Island of Hawaii, off-the-grid, in a yurt. I love my wife, who is an awesome photographer. I have cats. I like dogs, but don’t have one right now. I never learned how to surf, despite growing up in Hawaii. I paddle canoe. I used to play paintball. I drink a lot of NOS. I love coffee, specifically Kona coffee. I love photography, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, every video game Blizzard makes, Apple products, and Starbucks (but not in that order). I grew up using DOS and Windows but switched to Mac in 2008, and haven’t looked back.

About my work

I love to design web sites and other things. I like tinkering with PHP, occasionally. WordPress and Shopp are my favorites. My passion is to create web interfaces that help people to improve their web sites. I prefer design work over coding. I’ve been building web sites since 1996.

Mid Pacific Design is my business, but you can still hire me as a freelancer.
