About Chris

I worked several years in the military but felt constrained creatively so I decided to get out and start my company called Flyer. Flyer (http://www.flyer-live.com) is a space online where one can post flyers for events and anyone can easily browse events they're interested in.

I want to make design the forefront of the site since so many event websites are just tables of text. I wanted a more elegant approach.

I need another engineer to help shoulder the development effort. Currently the site is written in Pyramid, a Python framework. Ideally I would like to split the efforts between front end and back end engineering. Then I'd like to apply to tech accelerators to really get things going.
