About Me

My name's Chris (M) Heath and I'm a web developer/designer from suburban Melbourne, Australia.

I've been learning HTML and CSS since I was about 14, not really knowing what I was doing but still eager to produce (what I thought were) cool websites and themes. Progressing through my university course (Bachelor of IT at Swinburne Hawthorn), I developed a deeper interest in web development and design, taking as many related electives along the way as I could.

Towards the end of university, I took a deeper interest in PHP and the WordPress eco system, using my spare time to learn what I could. After graduating in 2015, I starting building sites and creating web solutions for organisations and other web agencies.

In my free time I like PC gaming, watching my favourite team or playing guitar.
