About Christopher

Over the past three years, I've worked for 3 start-ups - working various positions. Currently, I'm a business development consultant, helping a Fortune 500 energy company build their renewable energy portfolio.

I really disliked having to select "Business Developer" of all the available options because frankly, I'm the geek/nerd variety who likes to daydream and think about science/technology. I have some web development experience, and am continuing to learn, but I would prefer to act in a supporting role if your skills are superior. Once I gain additional programming experience I plan to change my self-description.

I'm currently building a messaging application with two co-founders. While they have technical backgrounds, we need someone who can step into the role of CTO, help build out our prototype and work alongside our technical team.

I've been helping build companies for three years and know that with my team, we can build something special. We don't necessarily want someone who is talented. We're looking for someone who has the personality and leadership skills to join a diverse, fearless team.
