of Chris Bowler


With a background in Computer Information Systems and a focus on UX, I’ve learned to adapt to my environment. My strengths lie in identifying what job the customer is trying to complete, then reducing obstacles that hinder them from doing so.

Throughout the process, my priority is to meet the needs of the customer, internal or external.

My experiences have given me the ability to speak the language of multiple disciplines. I’m comfortable speaking with developers, designers, marketers, and writers and am able to help each understand the needs of the others.

I’m organized. Punctual. I enjoy bringing order to chaos. I strive for clarity, whether in code, email, formal documentation or conversations. Making people happy makes me happy.
