About The
Developer

Hi, I'm Chris. I've worked as a photographer in New York City for about twenty years.

I also spent a few years as volunteer computer science teacher at local public high schools.

Recently, I had to step away from the city and my career to become a full-time caregiver for my mom.

With my shooting schedule suddenly cleared, I refocused my energy and began building the software I wanted while on shoots.

I became disillusioned by required subscriptions, dependence on proprietary cloud services, and invasive privacy practices.

I hope you enjoy my project. Feel free to reach out if you have questions or follow along on Instagram for updates. hello@pixlpath.com
