Hey, I'm Chris!

Problem solver, digital nomad and creator.


Problems I solve

I help businesses launch, grow and scale their products with technology. One way I do that is as a frontend engineer, where I build blazing fast ⚡ and stunning ✨ web applications for exceptional user experience.


Places I travel

The nature of my work allows me to explore the world 🗺 while working. Since 2018 when my journey first started, I have visited 10 countries. Keep up with my whereabouts 📍 in the travel section.


Content I create

I write about my personal experiences and the technology behind the products I built in the blog section. I also create YouTube videos 🎬 and Instagram reels 🎥 documenting the places I travel.

OpenChefs supports and delivers authentic food made by home chefs in the San Fransisco Bay Area. I was part of the core engineering team to launch their MVP for a 2-sided marketplace between chefs and customers. Since then, OpenChefs have grew 154% week-on-week in GMV with high retention rates and a growing waitlist of interested chefs.

I developed an end-to-end solution to digitalize physical grant applications to a 7-step online process.
