Solving problems is the chief passion of Principal Technical Architect Chris Dahlen. After graduating from the University of Chicago, Chris found his way into the tech industry in the mid-‘90s, where he has held roles as a developer and a project manager. He has worked in educational software supporting Pearson, Scholastic and Houghton Mifflin, served small businesses at inc.com, and consulted for Fortune 500 clients at Context Integration.
With Mad*Pow, he is responsible for developing web and mobile applications that meet our clients’ needs and standards while also realizing the experiences that Mad*Pow designs. From a virtual clinic solution designed to delight users, to digital companions that patients rely on every day, to an online directory of providers that organizes a wealth of data and presents it in a way that makes sense to new patients; he and the development team have tackled all of these challenges, bringing innovative approaches and crafty problem-solving to each of our engagements.
Chris lives in Portsmouth with his son, Nick. Weekends find them hiking, playing board games, and ducking into Caffe Kilim for a double-shot and a Yoo-hoo.
