Hi, I’m Chris. I’m a software engineer, amateur photographer, 3d printing enthusiast, husband, and father from the great mostly ok state of Utah.

When I’m not doing software development of some kind I’m probably either 3d printing, taking pictures, or playing with my kids. I also run a 3d printing focused TikTok with a decent number of followers.
