HI, I'm CHRIS
Team Leader &
I've spent thirteen years designing, launching, and managing digital products that people love to use -- and the better part of four decades trying to leave the world a little cleaner than I found it.
Product strategy, information architecture, user experience, user interface design, and CSS/HTML for individuals, startups, and growth-stage companies.

“Chris is always my first call on any tech project. He's a gifted product developer with an ability to translate customer insights, product vision and project constraints ultimately into a product that users love.”
― Jeff LeBlanc, Co-Founder of Out of Print Clothing
Brought on as a consultant in July 2013, I was hired a few months later to oversee the redesign of the company’s flagship website, theknot.com — a $150MM content site, marketplace, and wedding-planning tool suite. During my 3+ years, I oversaw several teams including content, marketplace, ecommerce, innovation, native mobile, user research, and tools.
As an avid writer and voracious reader, I believe each of us has a story worth telling. Based on dozens of user interviews with aspiring and established authors, I created Transom to help writers with the age-old problem of disorganized notes.
App Store Reviews
I just got this app and I immediately love it. I've had other apps that do the same thing but this one is just better.
Since papers and notebooks can get lost, I was very pleased and eager to give Transom a go and I was very pleased I did!
Wonderfully simplistic app that works! Thank you.
Brought on in the summer of 2012 to build the company's first formal Product & Design team, I staffed up and oversaw the responsive redesign of delivery.com and its mobile apps, including a full rebrand + identity redesign.
As Thrillist’s first Director of Product, I oversaw the design and launch of the lifestyle brand’s web and mobile products. In three years, we released more than a dozen mobile and web products across Thrillist, JackTheads, and Thrillist Rewards.
In addition to being proficient in Internet (as my resume once earnestly boasted), I’m a half-decent chess player, an avid rock climber, a boxing enthusiast, and an amateur ukuleleist. I’m also a voracious reader and an occasional writer of fiction and poetry.
I live in Brooklyn, NY, where I can often be found at Hungry Ghost mooching WiFi and debating a third cold brew.
