Senior Story Editor

When we asked Chris about his favorite things, he named eight local arcades. When we asked him where he wants to retire, he named the same arcades. That pretty much sums up where Chris enjoys spending his free time. As a senior editor at WIRED, he worked on several ASME-winning sections and issues, spent a day with Matt Groening, and appeared on the magazine’s extremely popular “Angry Nerd” YouTube series. Chris has also penned pieces for Slate, Rolling Stone, California Sunday, and Entertainment Weekly. He triple-majored at UT Austin and can read the Cyrillic alphabet. Not bad, Chris. Not bad.
