After working in the horticulture industry for more than a decade, Chris says his biggest accomplishment is starting his marketing and product development firm in 2014. “It was a scary moment … but I’ve had incredible industry support to make it happen. I’m very proud of the fact that I’m working with all of my previous employers through various projects, and that those relationships have remained strong.”


Hey Bartender! For the past 10 years, Chris has enjoyed being an occasional bartender in wine bars and restaurants. “It’s like throwing a party for a bunch of fun people that you don’t have to pay for. It is also where I’ve met most of my closest friends and previous employers.”
