Chrispian Burks

Support Technician

Chrispian got bit by the computer bug the first time he heard that sweet sound of a modem connecting to a BBS on the other end. It wasn’t long before he started writing code to add random signatures for VBBS and sharing the code with other sysops. He’s done a little bit of everything in IT including running PC support, running an ISP, co-founding the blog network 451 Press as well as communities for writers Lit.Org and WritingForums.com.

He and his wife make leather goods and he’s finally learning the ins and outs of photography after a lifelong obsession with it. He enjoys the typical geeky hobbies like science fiction, role playing, comics and reading. Chrispian is based out of Huntsville, Alabama where it’s always muggy but growing up there will definitely have you gazing at stars! Having NASA in your hometown tends to have that effect.

He started using WordPress back when it was b2/Cafelog, and for all the sites on the 451 Press network (just over 500 of them) and wrote tools to help integrate with phpBB, DirectAdmin and custom provisioning code as well as some small plugins related to advertising and running the network. WordPress has been his go to CMS ever since and loves how easy it makes building new projects for fun and for clients.
