Introduction: My name is Chris and I am a writer and technologist living in New York, NY. I manage investments for Iterative Instinct, a private equity fund which trades in crypto-assets. I'm also interested in design, and advise the smart fabric startup Loomia and the Los Angeles architecture firm M-RAD. My new book about smart contract programming entitled Introducing Ethereum and Solidity will be published on March 14, 2017. I've written and edited for Fast Company, Wired, MIT Tech Review, The Atlantic, Conde Nast Traveler, and the Tech@Bloomberg blog.
Consultation: Editorial, video, ethnography, design, product management, and strategy are adjacent disciplines I combine with technology to solve problems. Here are some of the brands that have used my creative work or strategic consulting recently.
Personal: In my free time I like to hike, camp, race mountain & road bicycles, and play foosball, habits I picked up a decade ago in college. While an undergrad at UVA I worked for Red Bull as a field marketer; during summers I worked in bike shops. I was also a rower on the UVA Men’s Crew and a brother in Phi Gamma Delta. I grew up in Northwestern Connecticut.
