My name is Chris Kirkham

And I am a hybrid.

I am a jack of many trades and a master of a few more. Why? Because it’s obvious from my work experience that what the modern workforce needs isn’t some highly focused specialist that a corporation can squirrel away in a cubicle. What it needs are people who are as versatile and effective as a Swiss Army knife. And just as handy.

I’m part journalist, part coder. One fifth filmmaker and a quarter designer. All of these skills mix to create a damned handsome web content producer. But I’m more than hexadecimal color codes and video codecs. I enjoy a good pizza. I’m the dude that still high fives. I get along with almost everybody. Take a look at my resume and skills below and if you’re interested in hiring me to build your site, app or awning (seriously, I’ve worked construction too), shoot me an email and let’s talk.
