About Chris

I believe in walking the talk and have committed myself to work/life balance! I swim regularly and do pilates twice a week.

I listen to podcasts on ideas, history, literature, science and philosophy.

I limit my intake of negative and disturbing media, enjoy  movies, regularly attend concerts, ballet, and opera, and am interested in contemporary and world music.

I enjoy the company of my family and friends and have taken measures to ensure I see them regularly, even if it does mean cooking.

Personal Philosophy

The happiness and greatness, the rank and station, the pleasure and peace, of an individual have never consisted in his personal wealth, but rather in his excellent character, his high resolve, the breadth of his learning, and his ability to solve difficult problems.

– Abdu’l-Baha

The moment we break faith with one another, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out. 

– James Baldwin

In union there is strength.

– Aesop
