  • Ops, Law, & Marketing. Open to New Adventures 🌱

Hey dear, I'm Chris.

📚 I love being a lawyer. Headed legal ops for a Pan-African education initiative. One of the few lawyers ever to have led IP in 70+ jurisdictions.

✏️ Founder of a profitable education startup focused on serving students with learning disabilities. Built partnerships with 50+ corporate and private clients, including leadership of Citibank.

🤝 Helped grow communities on 4 continents. Including two of the largest entrepreneur & investor communities in the Middle East — Acumen and C3.

I'm currently open to new adventures! I'd love to hear about your work. Come say hi 👋
