Chris founded LakeMinnetonka.com in 1996 and has served at the helm ever since. He's responsible for sales and overall site design. Originally trained as an artist, Chris gravitated to advertising when he discovered it was hard to get dates while living in a cardboard box.

Over the years, he has developed web sites, identity programs, sales materials, packaging, and trade show materials for small businesses and Fortune 500 companies from coast-to-coast. He lives in Deephaven with his wife, Diane.

Aldo (aka the First Mate)

Aldo handles many of the technical aspects of LakeMinnetonka.com, from basic coding to CSS, scripts and all things nerdy. He is also an excellent web designer in his own right, and contributes greatly to the look and feel of the community web site.

Mark (aka the Galley Master)

Mark handles servers, message boards, classifieds and ecommerce set-up. It's a murky world, which the Skipper and First Mate want little to do with. All the more reason Mark is an essential part of LakeMinnetonka.com.
