After a brief internship followed by a part-time position, Chris officially joined Rational Acoustics as a full time employee in March 2012. His current roles also include Product Management and Smaart Instructor. Since 2014 Chris has taught over 50 Smaart classes in 10+ countries and has given lectures and presentations at multiple industry tradeshows.
When not traveling the world teaching Smaart classes, Chris manages many aspects of the Smaart product development process including feature & UI specifications and 3rd party integration development. And if that isn't enough, he also handles user application support.
A lifelong audio guy, Chris holds a BA in Music Production & Technology from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford. He also works as a freelance sound engineer throughout New England, spending many summer weekends working the stages at regional fairs and music festivals. Before settling down and deciding to get a day-job, Chris spent his post-college years touring throughout the US and Canada as the lead guitar player for the Portland, OR based melodic hardcore band, It Prevails. He’s a phenomenal guitarist… and we don’t just say that ’cause he works with us. We’d go see him even if we didn’t have to.
