Chris Rawson

Chris Rawson has been using Apple's products on and off since 1982. He was a mostly a Windows user during Apple's "wilderness years" in the mid- to late-90s, but he came back to the Mac in 2003.

From 1995 to 1999, Chris served in the US Navy as a nuclear-rated electrician's mate and performed maintenance duties on an aircraft carrier's twin nuclear power plants. After leaving the Navy, he spent two years working as a Radiation Health Physics Technician in the private sector until a contamination accident convinced him to pursue a different career. He was thoroughly disappointed when the accidental radiation exposure failed to give him any superpowers whatsoever.

From 2007 to 2008, Chris worked as an editor for PR Newswire in Cleveland. While at PR Newswire, he gained inside knowledge of the workings of the US media and an amazing repertoire of anti-Cleveland jokes.

Chris moved to New Zealand in 2008. He is a summa cum laude graduate of Kent State University and has earned a Master of Arts in English from Massey University with upper second-class honours.
