Christian is a force. He comes from a family of entrepreneurs and do-ers.

I've personally watched him launch two successful projects, and I know he's certainly not finished yet.

Greg Pierce
They're my advisor: The Finance Coach  •  Director, Honors Core Program and Senior Lecturer in Finance, Schreyer Honors College at The Pennsylvania State University.
Christian developed my "The Finance Coach (tm)" brand by building me an outstanding, award-winning web site and an outstanding logo that is ... sticky and easily recognizable. He is the most creative web and logo developer that I have ever met.

Chris Danilo
They're my mentor  •  Co-Founder @TeacherBox, Founder @SmallBatch, Head of Marketing and Outreach @DecisionVis.
Chris perceives entrepreneurship as creating something bigger than himself, rather than freelancing. He enjoys, understands and appreciates ... the work necessary on all levels of a business or project. Chris is keenly aware of his own strengths and weaknesses, and thus the need for a counterpart that compliments his skills - rather than competes. Furthermore, Chris doesn't perceive being an entrepreneur as a risk taker which focuses on the possibility of failure, but on the possibilities and opportunities at hand. Which allows all outcomes, whether its success, learning, or failure... a joyous challenge of life.

Greg Pierce
We worked together  •  Director, Honors Core Program and Senior Lecturer in Finance, Schreyer Honors College at The Pennsylvania State University.
Greg has countless years of experience in business and corporate finance, as well as coaching and mentoring youth and startups in business p ... lan development. Enthusiastic and empathetic, Greg continued to push and explore new potentials while helping to formulate sustainable business models.
