My name is Chris Jean. Online, I’ve also gone by the names chrisbliss18 and Gaarai.

I work for, a company that produces professional WordPress theme and plugin solutions. I’m technically the programmer on staff, but I actually have a variety of roles in the company. As a programmer, I do all the back-end development for themes (create interfaces that make customizing themes easier, add new theme functionality, etc). As a person with experience in Linux system administration, I maintain the company servers and the in-house network. I also have my hands full with project management, developing new in-house solutions to improve product efficiency and quality, producing bug fixes together with Ronald (our great support guru), and so on.

All bundled together, we refer to my role at iThemes as Code Monkey.

More to come when I have time. 🙂
