He is an SDLC and Methodology implementations guru, having implemented full life cycle methodologies for startups and young companies, established small to medium size organizations as well as large, national companies.
By night, a professional writer/communicator & technology advocate… Chris is a father of 3 and a professional husband. When not running around coaching basketball or soccer games with and for his children, he enjoys movies, football (the Pittsburgh Steelers!), bowling, golf and cooking.
Chris enjoys gadgets and gizmos of all types, shapes sizes and kinds. He enjoys being on the bleeding edge of technology so he can find out what makes it tick so it can be explained and implemented and used by just about anyone, regardless of their profession, background, training or comfort with technology or new things.
To that end, he has written for a number of print and online publications. His credits include the following:
