Slick Media started operating in 1999. The company is headed by Christopher Duffy who is the Lead Designer and Developer. The company was started explicitly to provide website design and maintenance services to small to medium non-profit organizations and businesses. Our aim was to empower these organizations by solidly establishing their presence and then providing rapid turnaround on maintenance.
This model proved successful, however, the company has shifted it's focus to further empower our clients by keeping the content stream in their hands by using ColdFusion to develop powerful, self-maintainable websites and web applications. We continue to provide all levels of web maintenance, as well as developing these highly advanced sites.
As Lead Designer and Developer, Christopher Duffy is the heart, soul, and brain of the company. Christopher is truly a renaissance web developer. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland and has studied eight foreign languages. He worked for several years as a fraud investigator and has worked for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Christopher has also worked on special projects for the U.S. Department of State and the White House.
Christopher has had a lifelong interest in computing and began designing websites in 1995. He is entirely self-taught and has attained a high level of achievement in his area of expertise.
