Product designer and UX developer.

👋 Hi, I'm Chris Sealey. I'm based in Queenstown, New Zealand. 51bits is the moniker for my design outfit, where I've been shipping software with discerning folks around the world for 18 years.

I've consulted to myriad startups, agencies, entrepreneurs, and indie developers, resulting in millions of people interacting with my work. My passions span health, technology, nature, and miniatures. I'm currently directing design for sports media at Paramount.
