Welcome, Chris!

I am a soon-to-be undergraduate from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, getting a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Information Security. I currently have an Associates in Media from Greenfield Community College.

I’ve worked in computer science for video game companies, as well as for the United States Geological Survey as a Graphic Information Systems Web Developer. I grew up in northwest Massachusetts in a town called Greenfield.

What made you want to join the Promoboxx team?

The team and the goal are what made me want to join Promoboxx. After growing up in a town of very few big box stores, I can see and appreciate the importance of our local retailers. Being backed by the awesome team we have at Promoboxx, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to join the group.

What’s your favorite independent business in Boston?

I love local breweries. So far, I’ve really enjoyed all of the beers that Meadhall in Cambridge has come to offer. A lot of business in Western Mass. comes from our local breweries selling to local independent bars. Places like Meadhall remind me of the real love and respect a small business can have for local breweries.

Deserted on an island, what three things do you bring?

  1. A reliable multi-tool
  2. A sturdy canteen
  3. Solar-powered/crank flashlight

Best advice you’ve ever been given?

Pace yourself and work hard but always take breaks and make time, or you’ll burn the candle from both ends. – My father.

Do you have any hobbies?

I love playing video games, mostly team-based competitive games. I’ve played in some professional competitions.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I learned Arabic and Russian early in my career with the intent of joining the Department of Defense after graduating but later decided against it.
