Christopher Edwards

developer

Christopher says he bumbled around, buzzing through newspaper want ads, until he found Beezwax. We were delighted when he joined our hive.

As a veteran FileMaker Developer, Christopher brings his talents to client projects in development, design, system architecture and IT management. He started his career journey at Apple, using FileMaker Pro to develop databases, often in addition to his real work—he fondly remembers once getting thanked with two dozen free lunch coupons at Caffè Macs, and to this day is happy to work for food. He then moved to Microsoft to work on feature testing for Mac Office, and later served several years in the Microsoft Security Response Center. After a three year stint studying Japanese in Tokyo, he returned to Seattle as a member of the Apple Consultants Network, and prior to joining Beezwax was the in-house FileMaker developer at Nordstrom corporate headquarters.

Christopher is a FileMaker Certified Developer in versions 11 through 16, a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and reads and speaks enough Japanese to order dinner. His interests include food, books, backgammon, pun wars, and sustainability. And sustaining pun wars.

"Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!"
