My full name is Christopher William Horrell. I used to go by just Chris Horrell, but I got tired of that and now I prefer Christopher Horrell. I never use my middle name. I currently live in Toronto but grew up in Scarborough.
I created horrell.ca as a way to force myself to write on a
semi regular basis, to improve my web design skills, and to just keep up with web technology in general.
I have a degree in English and Psychology from the University of Toronto, a post-diploma certificate in Technical Communications (Technical Writing) from Seneca and Computer Programming Applications certificate from Ryerson University.
I worked in IT at Canadian Tire for about 10 years and now I work for Joyent Inc. (http://joyent.com/).
