In the past, Chris has founded a share housing startup, marketed music at what was the world's largest independent record label, overseen user experience testing at a major telecommunications company, spent time learning in digital agencies in the UK and Europe, as well as many other diverse experiences which he says has contributed to his love of “getting out of the building and seeing how the world works”.
