Hi everyone! My name's Chris and I'm honored to join the PlatoHQ community both here as a mentor and on the other side as a mentee. I've spent the last couple decades building tech and tech teams in the Los Angeles area for companies like Citysearch, eToys, Ticketmaster and TrueCar. Most recently, I ran engineering at Saatchi Art, a global online marketplace for emerging art that was acquired by Demand Media (now Leaf Group) in 2014. I built a team of 6 that handled all aspects of the site, including the challenge of simplifying our sprawling platform while both iterating at startup speed and integrating with our acquiring (public) company. On the personal side, I grew up in Hawai`i and like many islanders I love to eat, drink and "talk story". I'm a big volleyball fand an aspiring mixologist. Looking forward to sharing my experiences as well as learning from all of yours!

Sorry, I am not currently available for mentoring sessions.
