When not solving problems, he enjoys photography, writing, biking, and backpacking. He’s been north of the Arctic Circle and fixed an iPhone in New Zealand with a hairdryer.
Chris is a jack of all trades at Ruby Porter Marketing & Design. Using his bachelor’s degree in Political Science, he has worked as a writer, a salesman, a designer, and as client care.

Above all else, Chris is focused on keeping clients happy while bringing in new and exciting projects to the business.
Chris is also a world traveler, having been to 26 different countries, volunteers in and around the community through his work with the Active 20-30 Club of Eugene, and an avid dog lover, outdoor enthusiast, and Veteran of the Air Force.
