Hello! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

I'm Chris Boren. Some people call me Bo, and for the past decade I've had a wild ride of a career.

First I fixed computers, both for a small software company in Metro Detroit, and as the co-founder of a small repair shop called Detroit Geeks.

Then I managed brands. I helped grow the online presence of one of the largest fan conventions in the country โ€“ Detroit's Youmacon, as well as managed the media & online presence of 13 sibling companies in the EMS industry, working with brands such as the Detroit Medical Center, Beaumont, McLaren, MedFlight, Loyola Medicine, Edward-Elmhurst, Genesis, and more. I even designed an Ambulance that's still rolling around the streets of Detroit.

Now, I build experiences. After working at my share of software companies and agencies I settled down as a Staff Engineer at Clique Studios, spending my days building kickass websites and web apps for many brands you know, designed by some of the best minds in the industry.

I currently reside in Southern California with my wife, 2 year old son, and two cats named after the Star Trek character "Dax"๐Ÿ––๐Ÿป.
