Maria Athanasiou, PhD, Genaissance Pharmaceuticals

Chris has a very positive, can-do attitude, learns very quickly and does excellent work. I would recommend Chris highly and without reservation for a research position.

I was impressed with his organizational skills and with how he approached and solved problems. His questions were frequently difficult to answer and required several advanced degree people to resolve them. In addition to his problem solving ability, Chris is very pleasant to work with. He is willing to do any task that advances the work, and does so happily and efficiently.

Chris is an outstanding employee, an asset to any workplace. If I were in a position to hire him, I absolutely would.

As we made the transition to a clinical laboratory, Chris quickly adjusted to the stringent laboratory parameters from which we needed to operate. He designed and executed quality control experiments to maintain the integrity of DNA plate and related reagent stocks. He was also active in creating and proofing deparment protocols on a regular basis. With his consistent sunny personality and well-developed interpersonal skills, Chris was able to clearly communicate his ideas and opinions to the necessary people.

Chris is a hard working, goal-oriented individual with well developed laboratory and communication skills… a fine candidate for either a laboratory technician or technical writing position. I recommend him without reservation.


Fadel Lamen, The Magazine Group

For an international publication, Hi also has a small staff, and Chris proved himself more than equal to the multitasking requirements that we face everyday. He juggled multiple assignments, and his copy was well researched, well written and error-free.

His work with the front matter of the magazine shows his ability to leap nimbly from subject to subject, be it movie reviews, fashion coverage, or science news. In short, based on his experience with Hi, Christopher has proven himself enthusiastic and skilled in the business of publishing and writing.


Jim Marks, Lambda Literary Foundation

Chris was an excellent member of the staff who helped us improve our productivity. He served as general editor of the publication, assembled all the copy and did the initial design and layout. The result was that the Foundation was able to publish an additional newsletter to communicate with its members who formed the organization’s financial base.

Chris was always up-beat, eager to take on new tasks and persistent in bringing them to completion. I can recommend him whole heartedly.
