Chris is from the Bay Area and was a member of the football team while at Stanford.


People

Our people, here to help yours.

In March, to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we temporarily closed our office in Boston and became a fully remote team overnight. We all miss being in the same place together, but we’ve adapted to the current environment and have fully embraced Zoom and Slack so we can stay as connected as possible.
