Alejandra T. Cerna Rios
They're my friends  •  Previously Economic Opportunity Policy Intern, Center for Public Policy Priorities. The University of Texas at Austin grad.
Chris is an all around creative thinker and doer. He has sustained his own successful business for years. He is very open minded and is grea ... t at coming up with unexpected options.
Brett Gilbert
We worked together  •  Co-Founder at NuGrad, Sales Support Intern at Yapmo
Chris would be a great advisor because he has already been one for me. I am an intern with his startup and we work directly together. If I d ... on't know something or feel lost, Chris will explain something thoroughly. We collaborate ideas together in person or over Google Hangouts. He gives me free reign to do projects but always checks up on me to see if I have questions. Plus, with the startup I'm trying to start, he has added advisements and tips on how we should get started. He understands my idea for my startup and helps me brainstorm new ideas that would help it. I would be proud to vouch for Chris because he isn't only a mentor, boss, and advisor to me, but also a friend to me.
Shannon Tsaltas
They're my friends  •  Software Engineer, Tamr Inc.. Previously Analyst, True North Venture Partners. Harvard grad.
Chris is already a great entrepreneur. He has been running his own video production studio for many years. Big media and advertising compani ... es are struggling to adapt to the digital age. Chris saw this coming a long time ago, and set up a nimble independent shop where he could produce more with less by utilizing the latest video software tools. Chris' insight helped him see a hot new trend coming - video streaming - and to identify a new application in teaching technical skills via live interactive video. Chris knows how hard it is to get a new venture off the ground, and understands the commitment and hard work required. Chris may have the indefatigable energy of a 25-year-old, but he's no clueless hoodie-clad brogrammer. I am amazed at how much Chris has accomplished already. I was fortunate to witness him develop Watch Me Work from an early prototype developed with 1 coding bootcamp grad, to a gorgeous service with professional staff and a significant community of users. I believe Chris's creative and entrepreneurial experience will be a great asset as he continues to develop and grow the WMW community. He believes in the product and knows how to hustle to GET SH*T DONE.
Farman Pirzada
We worked together  •  Drafter, Ambitech Engineering and Freelancer, Founder, farmanp.
Chris wouldn't be a great entrepreneur because he already is one! He doesn't expect work to come to him. He is always going out to find the ... opportunities which is why he is so great at what he does. I worked with him at Startup Weekend for Education in Chicago and he showed strong leadership by keeping a strong sense of what he wanted and communicated it very well. Even after the event, he took the initiative to spread the word about his idea and attended other Startup Weekends, made a fundraiser on Indiegogo, and even spoke about it at an entrepreneurial event. He's going places because he wants to move to the next challenge! Chris is a great entrepreneur.

He's brilliant and extra lean.

Farman Pirzada
We worked together  •  Drafter, Ambitech Engineering and Freelancer, Founder, farmanp.
Farman will make a great entrepreneur because he has a combination of creativity and drive. He was instrumental to forming our team at the ... Chicago Startup Weekend for Education and brought a strong work ethic and creativity to our app design, UI/UX. In addition, he was collaborative and positive member of the team.

Jake Hamann
They're my friends  •  Cofounder, Startup Peoria and President & CEO, OneFire.
Jake is a committed entreprenur and community advisor and cares about growing his peer's businesses as much as his own. He has made a huge ... impact in the community he works in and directly to startups and businesses he advises.

Brett Gilbert
They're my advisor  •  Co-Founder at NuGrad, Sales Support Intern at Yapmo
Brett is an enthusiastic and positive contributor to our team. He has a great attitude and is willing to contribute to our goals regardless ... of what the job requires. I would recommend Brett as he is a fast learner, reliable and fun to work with.

Michael Somers
