We are an ambitious bunch. Scientists and storytellers, inventors and analysts, technologists, tinkerers, bushwhackers, and big thinkers. We make maps and software apps, manage forests and investment funds, connect local farmers and fishermen with local eaters. And we convene communities around ideas that matter. Learn more about our team here, and find opportunities to work with us.
Deutschland-raised. Chesapeake Bay-nurtured. Enamored of the multifaceted cultures and geographies of the world, with a heart’s beat that found its rhythm most in sync with the Pacific Northwest’s. An aquaphile, herbalist, and avid dragonfly-spectator. Delights in the harvest of fallen moondrops, and loves the wild in people, cities, and woods alike.

Once upon a time everyone who received computer games for Christmas were forced to be IT guys the next day to play them. Chris turned that misspent youth of editing config.sys and autoexec.bat files into the IT professional you have today. He still has a soft spot for extended memory.
