Wow, Chris is awesome. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Chris has a great understanding of the App space. The call with Chris was very insightful.
One of the greatest brain dumps of all time. Chris just told me everything he knew in just a few minutes. He just saved me 6 months of trial and error. Freaking awesome.
Very smart product guy and operator. Very helpful. Thank you very much.
Chris was extremely helpful and insightful. He gave me tons of advice in a very short time that was relevant to my project despite not knowing a ton of details. He picked up on my needs and applied it to his real life experience. I would definitely recommend him as a consultant.
Had a great call with Chris. He has an excellent handle on the subject of creating mobile app demand and monetization. Thanks Chris.
It was great talking to Chris. The conversation allowed me to figure out where to put our energies for growth. Very helpful!
Chris was generous with his time and insights. He has a great command of the mobile and social landscape. He also has great instrumentation at his company.
Chris is a great guy to work with; he's got a clear vision for Life360 and I learned a lot about working for a startup during my time there. He makes sure to hire the best to work there, and their winnings in the Google competition show the great results.
Chris is an incredible entrepreneur and person in general. He is no-nonsense in his approach and consistently over delivers on everything that the board has ever thrown at him. I have been working with Chris for 3 years in a board capacity. During this time, he has had to manage through impressive growth, difficult employee decisions, successes, and failures. Throughout every step of the entrepreneurial process, Chris has kept his positive outlook, pragmatic view point and posture. I believe that this has been the reason for the impressive story that is Life360.
While working closely with Chris to build out some of the earliest capabilities of Life360, I was immediately impressed with his ability to combine vision and entrepreneurship with a highly technical problem domain to bootstrap a product that delivers real value to the typical family. Chris has been able to hone two very diverse but interdependent sets of skills that are critical to succeeding as a technical founder, and I expect he'll be successful in his current venture and beyond.
