Investigate » People » Chris

My full name is Christopher Beaven, but most people just call me Chris. I grew up in the town of Napier, New Zealand.


From early in life, I found a great love for programming and in 1998 I went to study at EIT. After 3 years of study and the completion of my Bachelor of Computing Systems I moved to Wellington, finding a job with a small programming company (IMS). The year after (2002) I joined a web design firm called D-Designz (now SOLmedia). At the start of 2006, I created Tactful Ltd so I could focus on developing web applications.


Since August 2004, I have been married to a wonderful woman, Melanie.

I am a Christian and am dedicated to applying principles of honesty, integrity, ethical behaviour to all aspects of my life.
