Chris Salzman's Profile Image

Chris Salzman

Website Architect
Location:  Michigan
Phone: (800) 741-8034

Chris grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois--Wheaton if you're familiar with the area. After a five year stint in Indiana he ended up in Michigan where he's been ever since. In 2012 he married his wife, Betsy. They live in Ann Arbor with their adorable daughter, Scout, and cat, Susuwatari.

Before coming to The Modern Firm, Chris worked for Harper Collins writing online content, developing and executing content strategies, and administrating email newsletters for hundreds of thousands of users. Before that he helped Ball State University Libraries digitize their realia and oral history collections.


Chris loves working with people to find solutions to their problems. He's here to help you decide on the vision, direction, features, and tone of your project, or just to answer your questions about how the internet works.

He works closely with the project manager, designer, and coder to make sure your project coalesces into a finished product that reflects your practice and meets its needs.

What you may not know about Chris:

Chris is a lifelong tinkerer and aspiring polymath who is happiest when learning something new about the way things work. His parents were early adopters of personal computers and as soon as he learned how to operate a mouse he's rarely not been in front of a screen.

When he's not helping clients think through how to present themselves online, you can find him doing a wide variety of things:

  • Taking photos obsessively
  • Programming computers
  • Wrenching on his bike (and letting the professionals handle his car)
  • Sketching designs and pictures in his notebook
  • Crafting with his wife
  • Wandering around a library or a used book store
