Nice to meet you and thanks for taking the time to read my profile.
My name is Chris Ard. I’m a web developer with a love for design and efficiency. I have dedicated much of my career to fixing anything less than perfect, whether it’s a website’s design, coding, or even the project management surrounding it.
If it’s fixing an existing website or building a new one, I’m always happy to help and offer my technical expertise where possible and deliver consistent and reliable results.
My clients widely range from local businesses to international ones, including clients via freelancing services like Upwork and Airtasker. I always strive to create a comfortable and professional environment for all of my clients and value this deeply due to how critical it is for a project’s overall success.
Find out more about me below or get in touch if you have any questions.
I work on the Sunshine Coast in Australia & possess over 7 years of experience in graphics design, SEO analysis, marketing, sales, web coding / programming, and many additional emergent technologies.
My passion for all of this started when I was very young, around 7 years old with my first Compaq Presario computer. Born in Silicon Valley, the birthplace of the tech revolution, I could hardly escape the emergence of technology and its endless possibilities. That same passion has stayed with me over 20 years later, and followed me all the way to Australia, where I’ve struck an awesome balance between work and relaxation.

You can check out my profile on Team Treehouse (under the photo), which includes info about my activity in taking up-to-date technology courses that supplement my existing knowledge.
I have built over 30 websites using various frameworks and technologies. However, my primary focus in the last 2 years has been almost exclusive to WordPress. As such, developing custom functionalities, plugins, and advanced Child Themes have become something of an obsession of mine.
My goal is to provide clients with a website that they love, while providing clear and precise communication along the way. The whole process should be exciting and manageable, which is ultimately a great predictor of whether or not the project will succeed.
Being a part of the online community can be dizzying as a business owner, so my role in minimising the endless options available is something I take pride in with each and every web build. At the end of the day, you need to be happy with what I produce, so I make every effort to ensure that outcome.
