About Christi Richards

I’m a freelance web developer and designer with over 16 years industry experience working out of Youngstown, Ohio.

I have a passion for all things creative and find inspiration in the everyday things around me.  I am in love with typography and functional design and enjoy weaving different disciplines of style, art, and technology into my projects. I have over 16 years of development experience dating back to when animated gifs, tables, and Geocities were still cool. (It’s true!)

I enjoy working with startups and building communities from the ground up. Most of the projects I take on are on a remote freelance and consulting basis. I try to involve myself in projects and businesses that have a positive impact on the world whenever possible. From time to time, I do accept longer term opportunities, and for the right opportunity, would consider a permanent position.

I am always searching for new and inventive side project ideas and try to commit to as many helpful and positive projects as my busy schedule allows.  I have a particular interest in bringing more women into IT, especially where it concerns web development and programming. I am open to speaking engagement opportunities on a variety of web development topics and would be glad to visit a classroom or conference to share some of my industry experience.

In Summary

From HTML to PHP and jQuery – I can build interactive experiences that will change the way you look at the internet.  If you’re interested in the technologies I am versed in, please take a look at my resume or Contact Me.


When I’m not being the typical geek goddess, I enjoy playing classical piano, being a vocalist (R&B/Jazz), playing PC games, practicing Tae Kwon Do, as well as spending as much time as possible with my husband, son, and pomeranian, Dante.
