Chris Beaman is originally from a small town called Wellesley, Massachusetts – part of the Greater Boston area. Chris lived in Massachusetts until he was 18 years old. From a young age, Chris was interested in technology; however, he did not know that it would become the focal point of his career.
In 2002, Beaman moved out to Colorado – he wanted to get off the East Coast and start something new. After going to school for a couple years, Chris ended up living there and building websites – his first bit of experience with tech startups.
During his time in Colorado, Chris started attending tech startup conferences. Chris had worked for a larger corporation before and felt that his voice was not being heard. Eventually, Chris toyed with the idea of starting his own company and developing a unique product to call his own.
After moving back to Boston in 2006, Chris stayed active in the tech scene. He soon grew from a web designer/developer into a user experience designer.
In 2010, Chris’ dream of starting his own company came true. Chris co-founded Moving Metrics, a web platform used by brands to hire YouTube influencers to have product-placement in their videos. The product is a tool for companies to be able to deliver product placement to specific niches.
After developing the product at Moving Metrics for three years, Chris decided to move on. He worked with CoachUp, a service that connects athletes with private coaches, for eight months as a lead designer.
Currently, Chris works as an independent User Experience consultant for a variety of companies.
In his free time, Chris enjoys playing Ultimate Frisbee with friends and catching up on the latest news in his industry. Check out his other websites to learn more about him.
