He has worked at startups, consulting firms, and Fortune 500 companies, in domains that include mortgage finance, insurance, ecommerce, and industrial automation. At Rockwell, his work impacts the design of software that powers factories producing automobiles, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, diapers, and just about anything else imaginable.

Outside of work, Chris is a music / pop-culture nerd and a voracious reader who uses his store of useless knowledge to compete in an online trivia league. His happy place is right next to the stage in a small club, watching live music.
