Hey there! I’m Christopher.
I’m a product focused entrepreneur that is passionate about tech, music, design, and good times with great people.
I CoFounded Thematic with Michelle Phan and Marc Schrobilgen to bring music promotion to the content creation world. Music artists can now promote their music through tastemakers and their content. Our tastemaker community can rest assured that the music is fully licensed and won’t be claimed when they use it. We’re currently in private beta with ipsyOS creators and finding some great early success!
I like to make things…
Below are a few fun examples that I can share without stepping on an NDAs/FriendDAs
Bonfire was an experiment in story telling. We noticed that there was no video based, first person view of current events. We imagined a world where you could leverage your mobile camera to contribute to the worlds feed of the most recent events, as you’ve witnessed them, and we’d stitch them together based on a number of criteria. We never took this project to market, but I could still see this being useful, even with Twitter’s Moments, Snap’s Stories, Facebook * Insta Stories… a dedicated news/current affairs platform could be interesting.
Red Bull needed a new and novel way to change their constantly growing sea of sales reps. Rather than something static and boring, Red Bull wanted a tech heavy, forward thinking interactive experience. This iPad training app ran on multi-touch quizzes that asked the user to interact with the test questions using drag, cluster and multiple touch scenarios.
CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK
“In Flight” is a mobile app designed to allow 170 children’s hospitals across North America easily manage their relationships with thousands of distributed retail partners. Each hospital field rep could now have the ability to map their routes, access real time fundraising results and historical figures, manage contacts at each store and take notes in the field. Essentially removing the need to spend weeks planning for each campaign.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
The Habitat Mobile app was designed to put the nonprofit in your pocket but really centered on the ability to register volunteers via mobile. This app was a CMS driven platform allowing multiple Habitat affiliates the ability to customize and deploy their own version of the mobile app and manage the apps content and volunteers from their custom dashboards.
The team at SkuAlytics is building the first ever real time analytics platform for the latin grocery markets. This surprisingly underserved market is almost all but ignored by Neilsen and the likes while CPG companies are clamoring for sales data.
