Here's what I'm like to work with

Chris has been a pleasure to work with and contributed to the design, launch of growth of UNICEF Kid Power [… with his] vast set of skills that go beyond UX combined with his eagerness to help in any situation. He mentored other team members and happily did whatever it took to help us meet our goals. Troy Hickerson

Co-founder, UNICEF Kid Power / Calorie Cloud

Chris is […] a rare breed – a graphic designer, who codes and has usability experience. Chris was always quick to understand the brief and helped us with projects from "we need get it done quick and good" (which turned out to be 'very good', thank you) to "let's create something great from scratch". Giles Golborne

CEO, cxpartners

I worked with Chris on a number of projects and was really impressed with excellent design skills. He has a fantastic eye for detail and his openness to feedback (both from user testing, stakeholders and colleagues) made him a joy to work with. Anthony Mace

UX consultant / Associate Lecturer, University of the West of England
