Exist to create.

My name is Christopher Sardegna, and my project is Reagent X Laboratories. At Reagent X Laboratories, I have designed and built apps and websites, as well as worked in many other areas. I currently reside in sunny south Orange County or Los Angeles, depending on the time of year. My academic education is in Economics and Business Finance, a double degree I am obtaining at Loyola Marymount University.

As a photography hobbyist, my pursuit of perfection has landed my work in publications like Huffington Post, Psychology Today, FQ Magazine, ThoughtCatalog, Buzzfeed, Fast Company, Bustle, Tech.co, and the Rotary Club, as well as thousands of other corporate, nonprofit, and personal publications internationally. This pursuit is also evident in my share of time as a graphic designer and web developer, and then as an iOS developer. This pursuit plays a heavy part in what I do, how I do it, and who I am in general.

Data analysis has always been a passion of mine, from analyzing the economy of mobile games for fun to compiling information on revenue forecasts. Visualizing data and making complex trends easily digestible is a skill I possess and something I have a passion for doing.

I have most developed this skill in the context of Finance. In dealing with my own applications, which have a combined total of over 50,000 downloads, I modeled how sales would change. I also analyzed how my clients’ websites would perform in the context of their industries. I have also used these skills to streamline the data modeling process, from building simple hierarchies of company departments, accounts, and divisions to visualizing revenue forecasts for executive teams.

Beyond the warm glow of my monitors, I play ultimate, shoot landscape and astrophotography, and visit museums. I will never pass up a run or a trip to the beach. I enjoy a good video game (especially the Deus Ex series) and love the music of Blind Guardian, Mobb Deep, Eminem, Bach, Vivaldi, and Tchaikovsky, in no particular order. Also, I love cheese and tea.
