About Chris


For over a decade, I have worked as a software engineer in both corporate and contracting environments such as Boeing and Fedex. Currently, my primary areas of interest are developing secure software systems and refining the process of software development through best practices. When I'm not writing code for clients, I enjoy teaching the art of software development at Lipscomb University or getting involved in various philanthropic initiatives. I have visited over 10 countries, and I hope to one day say I've visted them all.

My Travels


Some of the countries I've been to include: Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Mexico, Honduras, Barbados, France, French Polynesia.
