For our special TEDxConstitutionDrive fifth anniversary event, we wanted to go back into the realms of imagination that we loved growing up – in childhood days where you can make anything, believe everything, and dreams could come true. We had speakers who reminded us what we are capable of — from metalworkers and artists, to writers who craft fanciful and strangely believable tales, to normal people with extraordinary stories to tell.
Chris is founder of The MyIntent Project which is asking the world “What’s Your WORD?” with the mission of being a catalyst for meaningful conversations and positive energy. Your word is something you want to have more of in your life or a challenge you want to overcome. We then hand-stamp each person’s response into a wearable bracelet or necklace as a daily reminder and conversation starter.
Previously, Chris spent 4 years at Facebook growing users, advertisers, Page admins (organizations and celebrities), and mobile users. Before that, Chris was a Marketing Director at PepsiCo and a senior consultant at McKinsey.
He has played guitar in a cover band with fellow Facebook execs called feedbomb, produced many unique events, and guest lectured at high school and college classes. Chris holds an MBA from Harvard focused on marketing, a B.S. in Psychobiology from Ohio State University, and completed the Hoffman Process – an intense personal leadership retreat in Napa.
