Cris Ravazzano

Web Developer & Digital Marketer

About Me

I started developing websites when I was 12 years old. Web development started out as a hobby for me and quickly grew into a career. I completed my first internship with a web marketing agency when I was a teenager and have worked and helped build successful web start-ups ever since.


My back-end framework of choice is Laravel and my preferred front-end framework is VueJS. I am proficient with content and affiliate marketing, search and social media advertising, and search engine optimization. I've used my skillset to build online businesses from the ground up.
