Chris of web development company Business Edge

from Chris - I am the Front-End web developer and WordPress developer. I am originally from Lancashire, in the NW of England (some would say the heart of England). I came to the States to study & play soccer. That was in the late 90’s! These days I have 3 main passions in life - Soccer, cats, and web development! I enjoy the problem solving that is involved with Front-End development and seeing the transformation from the code I write to what is on the screen that the user can navigate and enjoy. I also enjoy pushing WordPress to its very limit! I find it exciting to take the client's ideas and visions and make them into a reality. I have to admit, it is cool to explore a website that I wrote the code for!

What do you do here?

As a front-end developer specializing in WordPress, I’m responsible for implementing methods and solutions which improve the user experience for our clients.

What do you do when you’re not here?

Eat, sleep and drink Soccer! I’m either playing, watching or coaching soccer.

What is my favorite movie of all time?

Hard to say as it changes over time…but at the moment “interstellar” is up there , as well as any “Marvel” based films.

Where is your favorite place you’ve visited? Where would you like to go that you haven’t yet?

Paris is one of my favorite places I have been. Australia is a place I would like to go.

What video game do you enjoy the most? Do you like to play alone or with friends?

COD franchise, Football (soccer) Manager, Pro Evolution Soccer. I usually play alone.

Do you play any musical instruments? Have you ever been in a band?

Guitar, self-taught. I’ve done a few open mic nights and a couple of “local pub” performances.

Who is your favorite singer or band? Would you dance in public to their music? If not, how much money would it take for you to dance in public to their music?

Stereophonics, The Wombats, Passenger. I would need a couple of beers to start dancing.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do?

Pay off the mortgage, and my families as well. World cruise, rescue some poorly treated animals and make a donation to my church.

Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari?

Neither. Chrome, but if I had to choose, Firefox’s developer tools would just about shade IE10’s tools.

What can you do that most other people can’t do?

Quote the entire script of “Top Gun”, “Total Recall” and “Aliens”!
