Chris BeckleyI have been designing, drawing and doing creative things professionally for over 20 years. I started creating computer graphics in Microsoft Paint when it was first widely released in 1995. I went back to school in 2001 to study Media Arts. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2003 with an Associates in Applied Science Degree in Media Arts from Phoenix College. For over 5 years I worked for a major link broker learning HTML, XHTML, CSS, Search Engine Optimization and Marketing, Landing Page Optimization and designing websites, banners, logos and other creatives for clients and in-house projects. Since then, I have freelanced as a Web Designer, Graphic Designer, Web Developer and SEO Consultant.

I am currenty working part time for EminentSEO.com as Inventory and Special Projects Manager/Graphic Designer. Check out my Eminent SEO profile.

I am dedicated, detail oriented, well organized and provide quality work in a timely manner. I am also very friendly, reliable, motivated, have a strong imagination and adapt quickly to new challenges.

I am a visual communicator, conceptual implementer and an aspiring divergent thinker. I also believe as the great Sir Ken Robinson said, "If you're not prepared to be wrong you will never come up with anything original."

I have a beautiful, intelligent, intuitive, funny, caring and generous wife who is an educator and sculptor of young minds, which I admire greatly. I also have an amazing 6 year old daughter who is so smart and funny and keeps me young. I also have another daughter on her way in October! My family inspires me everyday. I very much enjoy spending time with them going to the beach, camping, visiting the Zoo, the Children's Museum, OMSI, forrest hikes and exploration, street festivals, the Pirate festival, Waterfront Park festivals, exploring parks and playgrounds, splashpads, exploring the various Portland area hoods, visiting indoor playlands and anything else we can do as a family.

  • Web Design
  • Wordpress Installation and Customization
  • Code Websites in XHTML/CSS to W3C standards for multiple browsers
  • General Webmaster Duties, including hosting, shopping carts, social media integration, membership sites, email marketing, embed videos, blog updates and more

I currently reside in Portland, Oregon. After living in Phoenix, Arizona for most of my life, my wife and I finally fulfilled our dream and moved to the great northwest.


I want to create quality visual communications and ideas that affect people in a positive way.
