Hello,
and welcome to my
small slice of the internet.

My name is Christopher Ellis and I enjoy creating things.
This site shows some of what I do.

About.

I've been creating websites for nearly a decade, first as a hobby and eventually as a profession. After many years of freelance client work, I took a couple years to focus on my own projects. I work extensively with PHP, APIs, and WordPress, having contributed to the core on several releases. For the past year, I have been working with the amazing team at Jaymie Scotto & Associates creating custom website solutions for the telecommunications industry. At the root, I just enjoy and have a passion for creating things and solving problems.

I have many interests, including an appreciation and love for the arts, music, science, technology, and most of all, my wife Caitlin and dog Franklin. For twelve years, I was a professional ballet dancer and was fortunate to have danced many roles as a member of a few professional companies with excellent dancers and great friends. After retiring from my performing career, I enrolled at The Ohio State University, where I am currently earning a degree in Computer Science and Engineering.

I find the universe we live in fascinating and human ingenuity even more so. I hope to soon be heavily involved with humanitarian efforts, specifically clean water initiatives, to help make our world a better place.

Projects.

Here are a couple of my projects that I am actively involved with and working on.
