Chris Who?

Hi, I’m Chris.

I’m carbon-based and I’m obsessed with helping kids grow into productive, globally-minded citizens.

I help produce the world’s largest LEGO®, MINECRAFT®, and science/tech expos for kids.

I use elements of Lean, Agile, Empirically-Based Learning, and Industrial models to make it happen.

I like to build stuff, adventure, goof-off, and burn a LOT of energy.

I blog, I write old-school sales copy, I run, I bike, I create music, and I believe that a little mischief is healthy.

As you can see from my site, I like to live pretty minimally.

I believe in living a life of social purpose, using things and loving people.

How I Spend My Time:

I spend most of my time with Open World Events.

We produce massive LEGO®, MINECRAFT® and STEM events for kids and families. It’s Edu-tainment!

I write for a few publications on

One of the values that I love in business and entrepreneurship is the concept of “paying it forward.” If we want to raise a species and culture of amazing people, we’re going to have to give back and help them avoid some of the obstacles we’ve each faced. I strongly value this idea and make this action part of my life.

I run an annual 5k race to celebrate healthy habits and raise some money for lung cancer research with some friends.

After being a smoker for ~9 years, I finally quit in the summer of 2014. My friend Meg and I decided we should celebrate by turning a bad habit into a healthy one. So we run 5k together with our friends to celebrate healthy habits every year. We make no money from this. Any funds collected from this are immediately donated to lung cancer research. Our goal is to make this new habit at least 10 years old.

That’s me.
