An Apple Peeler all his life, Chris Lasell holds a degree in the Culinary Arts and was once a hotel pastry chef at Dartmouth College. He bought his first Mac in 1986 and, with access to Dartmouth's internet connection, started peeling a different kind of Apple. In 1989 he became a Mac and Unix support tech for Dartmouth. Lured to the northwest by all the great beer, Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in '91 and did tech support and administration at Reed College for another decade. In 2002 he decided to wander around the country on a bicycle for eighteen months, and eventually landed in the San Francisco Bay Area to help Pixar.
