Charlie Evans is Technical Lead at SunRoom. Charlie built his first website way back in 1995 while completing a Computer Science degree at Waikato University. Since then he has focussed his career on web design and development, working for top internet companies in NZ and USA (Webmasters, Advantage Group, Netconcepts).
Charlie believes in clean code, great design and usable websites. He's a big fan of bells and whistles but only when they add function and value. Charlie is an active member of the Open Source community, contributing WordPress themes and plugins, Magento extensions and web development resources.
I work in a really cool industry with amazingly talented people. The way the web is evolving means I never get bored, constantly getting challenged by new technologies and rewarded with their results. As much as I love my work - you can only stare at a computer screen for so long, and living in Nelson makes an all too easy distraction. I'll take the beach in summer and the mountains in winter, thanks. Life is good..

It's a great place in life when work is actually something you really enjoy and I'm lucky to say that is the case for me. I am a self confessed internet addict, so combining this with my love of designing in Photoshop has lead to my perfect job, website design.
Away from work I adore being a Mum to our two children, Sophia and Nicky, who are AMAZING. I also enjoy illustrating, photography, writing and exploring New Zealand.
