About Chris

 I started building applications in C++, Java, and PHP around 2005 while in high school. I obtained a degree in Computer Science from Louisiana State University in 2011. During my time at LSU, I worked tech support and built out some custom applications in PHP & JS for LSU Residential Life. After a few years, I landed a software developer role at an IT and software development company before graduation. I gained a breadth of skills in technologies and project management from working at a software consultancy. I decided to move to a city with a larger tech community. In October 2016, I ended up moving to Nashville for my position at Franklin American Mortgage Company to work on a PHP and Angular application.
