“Seeing your children sit in front of big screen televisions watching their iPhones really changes your perspective on kids media.” This all too familiar scenario is one of the many reasons that Chris decided to start pocket.watch. As the company’s CEO, Chris is responsible for setting pocket.watch’s vision as well as helping to cultivate a strong working environment where his world class management team is driven to perform at the top of their abilities. Chris is a true pioneer of online video, with 20 years of proven success in both predicting and capitalizing upon marketplace holes that have dictated the future of media and entertainment. Most recently, he served as the Chief Audience Officer of Maker Studios and prior to that, he was the founder and CEO of venture backed startup, Take180. Both companies were acquired by The Walt Disney Company where Chris also launched Disney Online Originals, a division dedicated to the creation of Disney branded short form content. The earlier part of Chris’s career was spent at Yahoo, where he was one of the first 100 employees. Chris is married with two children and spends most weekends at his kids’ sporting events kicking it with other parents.
