Chris is a dog-whisperer. No, that's not code for something. He literally is an amazing dog trainer. But here at Sockeye, he's all about strategy and has more than 15 years' experience in planning, working on everything from tech start-ups to the Post-Katrina tourism recovery effort. His insights and strategy work tirelessly to uncover real truths about brands, making sure they are relevant, contextual, differentiating, authentic and effective. He holds a BS in Mass Communication from Boston University, is the lead organizer for PechaKucha Night PDX, but really, he feels best behind a pack of dogs. And no, that's not a metaphor either.
