Bio:

Chris somehow convinced the rest of the staff at Motif he knew how to write an article and had his finger on the local beer pulse. While this may or may not be true, the beers probably helped convince the staff his claims were not lacking in veracity. A Software Developer for a nearby cloud computing company he spends most of his days banging out code on a keyboard and day dreaming about robots to do his bidding. When he's not at work, he takes an active role as Vice President and founding member of the Rhode Island Brewing Society (www.ribrewingsociety.com), a social group dedicated to homebrewing and craft beer. During the summer you can find him on the kickball field throwing fake blood on the rest of the Providence Kickball League and leading his team, Zomboree, to victory. His favorite beers are IPAs in the summer time and Scotch Ales in the winter. Follow @evilkrumpis on twitter to witness his beer fueled adventures, listen to his hair brained ideas and disagree with his cantankerous opinions
