About Chris

I've been in the military for 16+ years, I'm currently an Army Reserve Officer and Government Employee stationed in Italy. I'll be moving back to the states in July and will be hitting the ground running with this Trip Commander app. I specialize in project management, process improvement, and logistics. I have a Business Management degree and I'm currently pursuing an MBA from the University of Maryland.

Trip Commander is a mobile app to help motorist plan all inclusive road trips and find friends to go on the trips with. We are currently on the google play store with over 1200 trips planned on the app and in 26 countries. We're growing more and more everyday.

I outsourced the code writing and now I'm looking for a tech partner to help me take this thing to the next level. I'm looking for a self motivated iOS and Android developer thats not afraid to take on the world and doesn't mind an occasional road trip or two.

I would prefer a veteran since I have access to a huge veteran network and accelerator program but I'm open to any motivated developer.
