Chris Murphy

Lead Web Developer, Unapologetic Nerd

An unapologetic nerd—definitely more Browncoat than Jedi—Chris built a solid career around bridging the gap between idea and technology. Having spent over ten years devoted to exploring the creative side of the web, he finally rebelled and joined the ranks of developers supporting the semantic side.

Now, as a dedicated senior web developer, he finds as much satisfaction in well-structured markup as he does with efficient source-code. If Javascript and PHP were official languages, syntax was dialect, and frameworks were culture, he would be fluent in multiple, accustomed to their nuance, and well-versed in to their practices.

When not writing code, or losing his voice after cheering for his kid’s hockey team, Chris writes fiction—Scifi and Fantasy—or at least tries his very best.
