Hi, I'm Chris.

I'm a user researcher. I help companies understand people, evaluate designs, uncover opportunities, and generate solutions. I'm currently with the amazing team over at Twitch.

You can find me on Twitter and LinkedIn. I'm also active in several professional Slack groups including Mixed Methods, Ethnography Hangout, Anthro Hangout, and Designer Hangout.

If you want to work together, you might be interested in this brief overview of my professional career to date:
