Aaric Pittman
We worked together  •  Rails Developer, Swingpal. Previously Web Developer, GS&F.
I think Chris would make an awesome cofounder. His technical knowledge is broad and that which he doesn't know he picks up quickly. The know ... ledge and experience he gained as CTO of SwingPal will be invaluable to any future projects.
Dave Lester
We worked together  •  Advisor to Product Development, Swingpal and EVP of User Experience, 247Sports.
Chris is a really driven leader and does a great job assembling the right people around him and delivering projects quickly.
Aaron Schaap
Founder, the Factory and Founder, Elevator Up.
Chris is a great advisor and entrepreneur. He's an overall encourager and likes to show people how to make things. His background is filled ... with creating the software needed to help startups get started and scale but also has quite a bit of experience in understanding the changing landscape of a new venture.
Frank Kany
They're my friends  •  Senior Developer, and Ruby/Rails Mentor,
If I was building a team for a startup company, Chris would be the one of the first few people I'd reach out to as a technical/business advi ... sor/mentor. He can learn any software/hardware technology and be proficient with it in a short amount of time.
Isaac L Siddiqui
They're my friends  •  Private Wealth Advisor, Stephen & Associates. Previously Financial Advisor, Self.
I have know Chris for 4 years. He is very smart, kind and hard working. When i wanted my own iphone app he was able to give me detailed exp ... lanation on how it works and what type i would need. He did not try to sell me something that was not going to work, he actually gave me better ideas than what i had. He is very passionate about the work he does and how he helps people.
