Hi, my name is Chris.
I live in Western Pennsylvania, and spend most of my time reading old essays and books, tinkering on software and servers, and pretending to repair a 150-year-old house and tame fifty acres of woods. I build and manage technology at Beck & Stone, a design-driven consultancy.
Previously, I led technology at New Founding, a venture firm that backs companies defined by American ideals and a positive national vision. I’ve been building on the web for over twenty years, and got my start at Automattic, a semiautonomous cluster of companies that steward the WordPress project, which powers over one third of the independent Internet.
