Profile

Hi!

I'm a web developer from NYC, focusing on Node, Javascript and React. I love learning the newest technologies to create great web experiences. Most recently, I worked at Kip, where I worked on a Slack bot and later worked in a team creating an entirely new frontend in React.

  • Interests

    I'm currently looking for a position at a company where I can continue to exercise my skills in Frontend development, especially in React and CSS, especially one where I can try new things and have input into the creation of a product.

  • Projects

    A website that will create and update playlists for your most played and recently added music

    A little twitter bot that might respond with a gif!

    An experiment in identifying positivity and sentiment in news

    A simple portfolio site for a friend

    Just a personal landing page. Check out chrisb.me/graphql or try curl chrisb.me for some fun!
