Chris chose to study product design at Stanford because it was the major that allowed him to postpone deciding what he wanted to focus on. While at Stanford, his advisor was David Kelly who was a professor of product design and also started IDEO, one of the leading product design firms in the world. David inspired Chris to try out the product design field, so Chris moved to New York to give it a shot. He would later come back to San Francisco to work with his old advisor at IDEO.
