About Me

Chris Otten | Front-end Web Developer

I am a passionate and creative front-end developer. I specialize in front-end development: building layouts with HTML and CSS and writing great JavaScript. I am able to fill the whole spectrum, beginning with planning and design to development.

I like to collaborate. I enjoy working closely with information architects and designers. Together, a good designer and good developer can work out better solutions to design problems than either could alone.

I'm always looking for a new problem to solve, so if you've got one that you need a hand with, feel free to contact me directly at
