My name is Chris Marslender. I currently live in Tucson, Arizona. I was born and raised here, but have lived a few other places, most recently Portland, Oregon. I have been building websites for many years, initially just simple static HTML/CSS sites. After discovering PHP and trying out a few different PHP based frameworks and content management systems, I eventually decided that my primary focus for now would be WordPress and it has become my CMS of choice, though I do like to work with other frameworks such as Laravel when I have time. I’ve also been tinkering with Vue.js, and React also sounds like loads of fun, just need to find something to build with it.
I’m currently an Associate Director of Engineering at 10up, a web development agency with a focus on WordPress development, and have the pleasure of working with some of the most talented people in the WordPress community.
Outside of work, I play the saxophone in (and serve on the board of) a community concert band.
The initial goal of this website is to have a place to publish WordPress and general web development thoughts or tutorials, as well as information about plugins I have developed. I may on occasion write up articles on some other topics that I find interesting.
I am not currently taking freelance work, but if you would like to work with me, get in touch with 10up!
