Hi, I'm Christian. I make websites.

Welcome. Please take a look at some of my work, learn about me, or get in touch. Hope to hear from you.

Stronger better harder faster.

It brings me great joy to do things well. I believe it is my responsibility to constantly improve myself to better serve my clients and produce quality work. I’m an obsessive learner, and I thank the web for supporting my habit.

One size does not fit all.

Web standards, semantics and accessibility are default. All sites should be built this way. Doing things right is important, but it doesn’t create excellence. My goal with every project is balanced, elegant design.

The rest of me.

I am a designer, a father, an artist, a photographer, a geek, and a wayfaring stranger.

I’ve been working the web full time for 9 years, and using the web ever since there’s been a web to use.


I am currently living in the fine town of Lawrence, KS, working as Project Manager for the online division of the Lawrence Journal-World. Birthplace of Django and home of Ellington. Where I groom our stable of award winning news sites.

I’m still doing a little bit of freelance for smaller projects that are particularly interesting to me.
