Bonjour!

Engineer, House Music, Creator and Athlete.

My name’s Christopher and this is a little bit about me.

On my many job searching quests and flying around the country on interviews, a wealth of knowledge and experiences have started to accumulate. 

One day while meeting a friend for lunch, listening to their trials and tribulations on finding a job with all the roadblocks they had incurred, it hit me!……I have some knowledge and insight with these experiences. Why not share this knowledge with others and create basic digital templates. 

Please check back often as many more templates will be added including WordPress Templates anyone can update and manage.
