Hi there, my name is Alex Chen and I am a web developer living in Auckland, New Zealand. With several years of web development working experience, my passion on web developing have not been reduced, which keeps pushing me to always try and learn new skills.

For example, I have built a travel blog WordPress theme in order to further my skills in WordPress. I very enjoyed the process in building the theme and even appreciate to have it completed. Lots of knowledge can be learnt and could be used in future customization. I also found Business Catalyst having great potential market, which is a got flexible and powerful CMS. Some great portfolio have been done by me.

I am a graduate student from University of Auckland majoring Computer Science, and a web designer and developer from Media Design School. I have lots of coding (including Java, C++, HTML5, PHP, JavaScript, Flash, Actionscript etc.) and designing (using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Firework) experience by finishing my courses. They gave me an introduction to programming world, and greatly helped my understanding to other computing languages.
