Chris began his editing career in the educational publishing industry, working mostly on history, geography, and language arts textbooks and other curriculum products. Most recently he worked at the Petroleum Extension Service, a division of Continuing and Innovative Education at The University of Texas at Austin, developing training manuals for the oil and gas industry. He has also spent time working as an independent contractor, writing, editing, and copyediting a wide variety of documents. Chris is looking forward to joining in the task of make BEG publications as clear, precise, and engaging as they can be.
