Service Description

Christopher is experienced with both business-to-business applications and direct to consumer online retail. His first eCommerce Web site premièred in 1996 at a time when business authorities routinely gainsayed the profitability of direct-to-consumer sales via the Internet. Not only did Christopher's premier consumer retail site earn a profit for his client in its first year online, it did so while targeting a technologically unsophisticated demographic: An entrenched customer base typically aged 40 and above. The site succeeded in large measure due to its unique and targeted user interface, which was specifically designed to humanize online purchasing and afford customers with a natural and familiar experience.

Christopher is currently providing usability contract work for a number of organizations located throughout the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.
