Key Accomplishments

I've been the COO and the right hand of Lucky Sort for the past 2 years. During that time, I’ve overseen product development, budgeting, client relations, and all contract matters. My latest project was managing Lucky Sort’s acquisition by Twitter. In previous positions, I managed teams of forensic data analysts and economists in multi-million dollar contract litigations. My greatest strength is my hybrid technical/management background: I can collaborate with engineers and write code when needed, but I can also review contracts, advise the Board, and develop high-level strategy.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

In terms of fundraising and team development, I have a network of angel investors and developers in New York and San Francisco as well as Portland with whom I have worked before. I can also manage contract matters, keep legal costs under control, prepare or make client presentations, and provide bookkeeping/payroll services. From a technical standpoint, I can handle development operations, develop deployment strategy, and manage small to medium cloud infrastructure.

Chris is amazingly cooperative, cool-headed, and motivated. He is an outstanding communicator and is highly reliable. He juggles priorities ... gracefully and adapts quickly to eliminate obstacles. When working with Chris I was frequently impressed by his ability to collaborate and organize under stress and in uncertain circumstances, while remaining friendly and cheerful. He is eager to execute whatever steps necessary to move forward, and has a wide range of skills ranging from technical to operational to managerial.

Lucky Sort would not have been a success without the tireless labor Chris put in. He's a phenomenal business partner and I'd trust him with ... my life.
