Chris Cadalzo

web developer

After 14 years of teaching, I left my job as an elementary school teacher in New York City public schools in 2014. Since then, I’ve been creating high quality teaching resources & curricula from my laptop, while traveling the world.

I learned to code through online courses and tons & tons of practice (and more than a little frustration!). I spent hundreds of hours working and learning so you don’t have to!

When I’m not out wandering my whatever my current home city is (which is most of the time), I can usually be found on the ice (skating!), attempting to learn languages (foreign & coding), devouring whatever street food I can find, building human towers, or doing whatever it is the locals do.


Reviews from Clients

Christine was absolutely fantastic to work with. She gives great feedback and gets back to the customer quickly. She kept me updated on progress throughout the project and answered my many questions in ways I could understand. She was able to take my branding, ideas, and vision and create a website that was exactly what I had envisioned and more. My website is gorgeous! I loved how easy it was to share ideas and comments throughout the process.

Communication and feedback was so important to me. I valued her expertise and ideas. This was my first time hiring someone I didn't know, and I felt like I could put my trust in her to see the job through. I am excited to hire her again as we expand our business.

I would highly recommend Christine!

Christine was terrific! I needed updates made to my Wordpress website, which involved transitioning some information from my previous web developer. She handled all this perfectly, communicated everything clearly, and made all the changes to my site. We will definitely work together again.

Christine was a joy to work with. She took my ideas and developed a website that exceeded my expectations. She has access to the latest WordPress themes as well as artwork that matched the tone I was seeking to evoke. She communicated constantly and checked with me before continuing past where I had authorized her to work. I definitely felt like I was being treated fairly and that she realized her hourly rate needed to produce results.

At one point, we realized what I was asking for required her to write code. Christine was up to the task, and performed flawlessly. I was glad she possessed the skills necessary to pull this off.

Overall I am extremely satisfied and am already planning another project for her to help me take on.

Working with Christine has exceeded my expectations in every way! I was concerned about hiring someone unknown for an important website redesign/development project - she was a true partner. I'm already planning the next project with her.

Christine did an excellent job in building our company website and had some great suggestions as well!! I am happy with how our website turned out and will look forward to working with her in the future. I will definitely recommend her work.

Christine is very knowledgeable, professional, and patient. I really enjoyed working with her and would definitely work with her again!!

She responds to messages very quickly as well. I highly recommend working with her. You will not be disappointed.

Christine was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! We needed so much guidance on how to build our site and she helped make our vision a reality. She was so patient and gracious throughout the process as we made so many revisions, trying to determine exactly what we wanted. In the end she produced a fabulous product that we are thrilled with! I would highly recommend Christine! She is incredibly skilled in what she does and will help you attain your website goals!

After making the move to Wordpress, I was not happy with my original design. I hired Christine to help me and although I didn’t know exactly what I wanted, she jumped right in with the design and absolutely exceeded my expectations. She was able to figure out exactly what I wanted even though I wasn’t fully able to express it! She always worked quickly and efficiently, keeping me in the loop during the entire process. I was never left wondering what the next step would be. Christine communicates very clearly and effectively. She listened to all my ideas and made changes quickly. I truly love my new Wordpress design and I’m so thankful I found Christine to help me!

Christine was absolutely fantastic to work with. She listened to my ideas and gave suggestions as well. Communication throughout the process was consistent; I never had to wonder where we were in the process. I had previously hired someone else to design/build my website. However, at four months with no website, nothing to review and always wondering the status of the project, I decided to part ways. I hired Christine (which I should have done in the first place) and I want to kick myself that I did not originally select her (it was narrowed down to her and one other). Christine got to work and within 2 days I had website templates, colors, images and pages for me to review. The job was complete in less than 3 weeks. Not only did Christine do a great job building the site, she made it easy for me to make revisions to content/images which is great. I highly recommend Christine.

I'm definitely a novice in this area, and Christine saved my site! She redesigned it with an entirely different feel, and it's working great... Communication was great, and she was always willing to adjust anything needed.

I'd recommend her for web/blog design work!!

Christine built us a beautiful website. She is easy to work with, communicates well, and is able to put your ideas into action. We highly recommend her.

Christine is great to work with. She is creative AND technically skilled, a rare find. She is a great resource to any project for anybody that wants to get a website up and running fast. Fairly priced too. Christine holds herself accountable to completing work in time while delivering superior design. is an author website she created for me. It gets raving reviews not just from me but from visitors as well!

Christine knew how to Listen to what I wanted, the purpose, the design, the colors, the innuendos. One problem I gave Christine was this: much more content than she expected. I did not know how to judge the volume. Perhaps there is a better way to estimate it. However, Christine handled it with aplomb. I had talked to several Upwork candidates before offering the work to Christine, and the reason was simple: She asked me what I wanted to do with my website then Listened to the answer.

Christine is so patient with blog newbies! She explains the process and always responds promptly. I will definitely use her again!

I can't say enough good about Christine. She is someone you would want on your staff full-time if she wasn't a freelancer. She is very honest and trustworthy with your company's data. She is very reasonable with her hours and charges. She is very responsive and has always been quick to communicate and complete the jobs.

I'm very happy I picked Christine. She is very prompt and frugal with her time billed. She was very honest and trustworthy in my experience. I would use her again.

Christine is very knowledgeable and creative. She took a vision and completely transformed it into a beautiful website that I'm 100% in love with. I'd highly recommend her for any project you have coming up!

UPDATE: This is the second time of worked with Christine, and I will definitely be hiring her again!

Christine was a huge help to get my website up and running efficiently. She was very knowledgable about the Divi Theme and wordpress and helped me through the process of evaluating options and making decisions about the various components of the site. I appreciated her willingness to iterate with me and teach me how to update the various aspects of the site. She is great at balancing desired functionality with the occasional constraints of how the backend is set up. I also appreciated her willingness to video conference when we needed to and the flexibility in her schedule in scheduling across time zones. I would highly recommend Chris to others looking to set up a beautiful website that works well.

Christine is very, patient, responsive and informative for a “newbie”. My knowledge in a blog set up is 0 and she’s been more than helpful with setting up my first blog. I highly recommend her to work to work on your next project! Thank you, Christine!!!

Christine did an amazing job setting up my website. I started a small lifestyle blog but I know absolutely nothing about web development or design. Christine set up my entire website (minus the content) in a very short amount of time. The blog looks great! She was very professional and responded back to me within a timely manner. I never once had any communication problems. If I ever need help in the future on my blog or any other websites I decide to set up, then I will definitely contact Christine.

I am a wordpress novice but capable enough to do changes and updates. When I do need an expert I don't need to recreate or start a project from the bottom up. Christine is the first freelancer that listened to what I needed and worked with me as I needed. Thanks Christine! I'll be using you again in the future.

Christine designed a beautiful website for my business and helped to guide my revision process. I'm very happy with her work and I will happily hire her again.

I'm very happy I picked Christine. She is very prompt and frugal with her time billed.

She was very honest and trustworthy in my experience. I would use her again.

From my experience so far, what really stood out to me that separated Christine from anyone else, is that she was honest, I had people telling me the simple website i needed would take "60-70+ hours" and magically she accomplished it in 5, PERFECTLY, and had absolutely no problems whatsoever, she was responsive, helped me when I had questions, went way above and beyond to make sure i was well taken care of.

Chris is a great communicator and has excellent design skills. She is patient, creative and focused, and she was able to capture and incorporate my ideas into a professional and unique website. I look forward to working with her again as I grow my business!
