Archived bio:

Chris graduated from Harvard Law School in June, 2007. While a student at HLS, Chris served as Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard Journal of Law & Technology and an officer of Net Dialogue, and enrolled in as many technology-related courses as he could manage. As part of one clinical project with the Berkman Center, he co-produced a study entitled Ethical Implications of Emerging Technologies: A Survey for UNESCO. He spent one summer as a Legal Intern for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and a second summer as a Summer Associate with the law firms Heller Ehrman LLP and Knobbe, Martens, Olson & Bear LLP.

Prior to law school, Chris earned a B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering from The University of Michigan and a S.M. in Computer Science from MIT. He was employed for several years as a software engineer for Intel Corp., and later as an independent software designer working on real-time applications and database solutions for performing arts organizations. Between those two positions, he spent a year living and traveling in western and central Europe.

When not focused on issues concerning human rights and civil liberties on the Internet, Chris can often be found cooking, hiking and camping, or ballroom dancing.
