About

Kristofer Oliver


What's a Creative Developer?
The self-coined term 'Creative Developer' is a non defining attempt to encompass an ever-evolving portfolio and skillset. Director, composer, coder, author, perfomer, creative advisor... tends to be a bit of a mouthful when asked "what do you do exactly?".


Location
After a year of living in Spain, a decade in Paris and a few months in the Caribbean & Switzerland, Kris has now setup base next to MediaCityUK in Manchester. The vast majority of Kris's commissions and collaboratings are international and via the internet.


Let's skype or go for a coffee!
Kris is always keen to hear about new projects and potential collaborations with producers, performers, artists, web developers, attractions and other creative industries. If you are in early stage production, already have something established or seeking a new project, feel free to get in contact and introduce yourself.
