Chris English started in ecommerce in 1995, building his own ecommerce store using Miva Script. The site and his talents were eventually purchased by a larger company during the dot com boom. When that company failed, he launched a Latin music download site — featured in Macworld magazine and New York Post — that was based on a highly customized version of osCommerce.
Chris was also one of the first independent publishers to embrace the iOS newsstand and tablet-based publishing in general. He is currently a web designer and developer for Solid Cactus, an ecommerce design and development firm. Email Chris.
