Peter Johnston, CEO, Kalo
Chris is a machine - I would rehire him in a second. He not only has the ability to get things done and shipped incredibly efficiently, he does so while considering the bigger picture. Chris is incredibly versatile too, I was always confident he would think like a product person, not just an engineer. I couldn't recommend him higher. He built Kalo's platform to what it is today.
Adam Neilson, CTO, HealthUnlocked
Rarely have I come across such a talented front-end dev as Chris. He's phenomenally good at making complex projects look simple and difficult schedules achievable with an unparalleled command of his domain. Definitely a welcome member of my dream team to conquer the World!
