Chief Executive Officer


“Exceeding the standard is the standard.”

About Chris

I am a determined, creative, and enthusiastic digital marketer and leader. As a veteran of the U.S. Army Infantry, I'm focused on achieving mission success at all costs. I love learning from others and take pride in having worked with a wide range of clients. 


Over 10 years of operations experience


Led teams of over 150 personnel


Three and half years with Lean Labs

What you do (professionally)? I lead the Growth Team at Lean Labs to build high-performing sites and drive results through growth marketing for our clients.  

What makes you good at it (background / skills / traits)? I attended the University of Maine, graduating in 2011 with a B.A. in English. Coupling this with seven years of active service in the U.S. Army as an Infantry Officer, I've acquired skills that lend, surprisingly well, to digital marketing.  Discipline, drive, risk management, professional development, operational planning, as well as oral and written communication have provided an extensive base to grow my career as a leader and marketer. 

Why you do it for Lean Labs? When I decided to leave the Army, I searched for a company that would give me flexibility in my schedule and fulfillment in work. Lean Labs' unique structure offers both of these and so much more. The team is constantly driving each other towards excellence and the company's core values make it an honor to work with them. Working with Lean Labs is like hiring a team of mentors, only they pay me.
