Founder & History

chris-headshot-webHi. I’m Chris. I basically am DailyTekk. I’m the founder, editor, designer… you name it. I don’t work at a tech company and I’m not a member of the official “tech press.” I started this site because I wanted to keep track of the cool technology I ran into on a daily basis and share it with my friends and coworkers. That was back in January of 2012. I guess a lot of people liked what I was doing because DailyTekk has come a long way since then. Brands like Microsoft, eBay and Bose have since sponsored the site. This article has been shared on social channels by over 600k people alone. Professors at multiple universities have used DailyTekk material as part of classroom material. Pro athletes have tweeted out my content and rock stars like Jared Let of 30 Seconds to Mars have re-blogged it. Yep, it’s been pretty fun so far. DailyTekk’s traffic currently hovers between 400-500k views per month according to CloudFlare. So that’s the back story. Feel free to get in touch and thanks for reading!
