Chief Executive Officer

Chris made his first foray into the web when he was 11 years old, creating a site on (young people won’t know what this is). He moved to the Triangle from Boston, MA in 2010 and shortly after that started a bicycle-powered organics recycling service he coined Tilthy Rich Compost, get itRooted in his passions for the environment and justice (a skosh above his affinity to write in the third person), bicycles are an inextricable element of Chris’s professional and personal life. Whether it be a 4-month ride across the U.S.A in 2008, biking from Boston to the White House to protest the Keystone XL Pipeline, leading a 100,000+ member bicycle/hospitality focused global nonprofit through a challenging transition, or simply riding into the Savas Labs office in downtown Durham each day, you’re likely to find Chris on or near a bike. Wave to him; he’s friendly. Chris constantly schemes on how to use his resources best to be a force for positive change. He’d love (and needs) your help!
