About Chris

I’m an independent brand strategy and design consultant, and the founder of Thompson & Prince and Everharbor. Previously, I was Managing Director at Infinia Group, where I led Infinia Ventures, a practice dedicated to the startup ecosystem (dba Rocketure 2015 - 2017). Before Infinia, I was at Havas Worldwide New York following a stint as a freelance strategy consultant at a number of creative agencies (Droga5, Clear M&C Saatchi, CHI&Partners, Firstborn). I've done strategy consulting work in brand, digital, and growth strategy for clients ranging from startups to Fortune 500 and the US government.

Early in my career, I worked for IBM Global Business Services and Booz Allen Hamilton in the Washington, DC metro area. I hold an MBA from the full-time program at the NYU Stern School of Business, where I specialized in Strategy, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, and Finance. While pursuing my undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill's Kenan-Flagler Business School, I interned at SAS Global Headquarters in Cary, NC.
