Chris has spent most of the last decade split between the US and Nepal. As a student at Yale University and the School for International Training (SIT), Chris conducted research in Kathmandu and throughout the Khumbu region surrounding Mt. Everest (he’ll do anything to get into the mountains). As a Fellow with Kiva.org, Chris worked closely with local microfinance institutions to document the work of small-scale entrepreneurs. A graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and a former President of the Yale Mountaineering Club, Chris loves mountains, fly fishing, water buffalo momos and singing off-key in Nepali. Chris is really good at sleeping on planes and he never turns down daal bhat or empanadas.
