CK Hicks - Heartful Technologist


I’m CK, a Heartful Technologist and multi-disciplinary creative in Kansas City, USA 🇺🇸


I’m a life-long learner with ~15 years of professional experience in software development and multimedia production.

Understanding how people interact with technology is my never-ending hobby. Bridging the gap between the digital and physical realms is my constant daydream.

You can usually find me with pen in hand, camera at the ready, and up to my elbows in lines of code.

I’m driven by the beliefs that time is our greatest common currency and people are our most precious natural resource. My favorite question is “what if” and I’m always prepared to work hard in pursuit of the best path forward for everyone.
