You probably want to look at my work. No problem, but can I introduce myself first?
Hi, my name is Chris Wray, I’m a Front-end Web Developer, though, throughout my career I’ve gained a broad range of experience in vastly different areas through problem solving.
I’ve dipped my toe in (and often dived straight into) Web Design, Email Marketing, Design for Print, Logo Design, Video Editing and Production, Voiceovers, Virtual Learning, Writing Sales and Technical Documentation, Group and One-to-One Training, and finally, providing IT Support for Windows and Mac.
There are three things that are most important to me – I relish a challenge; I’m a team player; and a busy day is a good day.
I currently work for Blow Media Ltd as Web Designer/Developer, responsible for design and development of client websites.
When I’m not doing any of the above, I’m focused on my family.
I have been happily married for 10 years to Helen, whom I met whilst working down south in Stamford, Lincolnshire.
We now live in Skipton, and we have a little boy called Edward Peter who was born in 2012. We had another baby boy, born in April 2015, Timothy Lloyd, but tragically he died in July of a brain tumour. After he passed away, we were cared for by Martin House, in Boston Spa.
Martin House was set up to provide family led care for children with life shortening conditions. It is a place where children, young people and their families can come to stay from time to time along their journey and find support, rest and practical help. We set up a JustGiving page for donations to Martin House, and in October 2015, we surpassed our initial target of £5,000. We now aim to raise £13,500 through charity runs, bake sales and much more (Our new target is the amount it costs for Martin House to run for one day).
Our JustGiving page is at: https://www.justgiving.com/timothylloydwray/
In my spare time, when not spending time with family, I enjoy cult cinema, cult and SF TV, Xbox 360, guitar playing, classic rock, Magic the Gathering, euro-board gaming (Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan, Ticket To Ride etc), cooking, beer festivals and cycling.
