Chris “Smitty” Smith lives in the Rocky Mountains in Crested Butte, Colorado with his wife, Cyndi, and daughter, Campbell.  

Smitty is a Professional Office Developer, leveraging past corporate experience across a host of different corporate clientele.  When he's not developing Excel/Access applications, he's busy running around the country facilitating Office training sessions for customers like the Department of Treasury, CalTrans, Apple, Ralph Lauren, Verizon, and many others. 

Prior to that he was Senior Vice President/Controller for A-Tech Industries, and spent 15 years with Harte-Hanks Shoppers (North America's largest weekly Shopper publisher) as a Senior Manager/Financial Analyst/Sales Automation Developer. 

His primary role is utilizing Excel and Access to streamline sales processes and procedures, including building proprietary sales force and customer applications.  He learned Excel and Access as a function of the job and relies on native solutions and VBA equally.

Before delving into the Microsoft world Smitty worked as a Ranch Manager/Cow Boss/Cowboy, after graduating from the Ranch Management program at Texas Christian University.

When he’s not busy at work, he is an avid Rock & Ice climber and occasional mountaineer. Smitty enjoys motorcycle riding (Triumph Daytona 955i), lacrosse, shooting, golfing, and camping with his beautiful wife and daughter.
