Hey there--my name is Chris and I'm a Senior Editor at FastCompany, where I edit FastCo.Labs, the magazine's hacker news site. My team and I experiment with publishing technology and disseminate what we've learned through talks and classes at places like General Assembly, Stanford Graduate School of Business, TechStars@Kaplan and Soho House New York.

My background is in journalism, design and consulting--see my full work history here. I've worked on design documentation for Microsoft, user interface projects for Samsung's display group, and branding for Red Bull.

Prior to Fast Company, I wrote for CBS MoneyWatch, Forbes, MIT Technology Review, The Atlantic, INC, Rolling Stone and Discover magazines. As a photojournalist for BIKE magazine in California, I traveled the country documenting remote mountain bike trails.

I'm 29 years old and live in Brooklyn, NY. Feel free to contact me about stories or speaking engagements.
