Hello, I'm Chris Gibbons.

An experienced frontend developer based in Lancashire [53.7632° N, 2.7044° W], UK.

I build fast, user friendly and accessible websites for the automotive industry, with a particular passion/obsession for well written and clean code.

I’ve got over a decades experience as a front end developer and have recently found a passion for UX and accessibility. My career has been spent working for some of the top businesses—both agency and in-house—in Manchester. During this time I have been fortunate to have the chance to work on large scale, content-managed platforms for some of the largest companies in the UK

I also like to write, and occasionally take pictures.
