Chris is Bright Ideas’ go-to guy for writing duties. He contributes content to the website, newsletter, and anytime we need just the right words to paint a picture in under a thousand words!

When not busy tapping away at a keyboard, Chris can be found riding his bike, enjoying the arts, or spending time with his daughter.
Originally from Maple Ridge, Kevin has escaped the big city and now lives on the Sunshine Coast. He handles our website design, development, maintenance, and newsletter management.

With social media an increasingly important component of any company’s web presence, we’re glad to have Andy handling our social media strategy and Facebook design. Andy claims to be always working, but we suspect this British import (Newcastle) now living in Edmonton takes a little time once in a while to relax and recharge his creative batteries, because he always has some good ideas to offer!
