Chris is the Editor at Red Alert Politics. Most recently a legislative and communications aide on Capitol Hill since the outset of the 112th Congress, he has worked as an editorial writer for The Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Calif., and written for the web arm of SLAM Magazine.
He began his college education as a mechanical engineering major with the misunderstanding that his years of expert Lego-building qualified him to fashion a real-life U.S.S. Enterprise. (Whoops.) He went on to study economics and history at Butler University -- the one of adorable bulldog mascot fame -- and journalism at Northwestern University's Medill Graduate School of Journalism.
Chris lives in Washington, D.C., where he uses the freer hours to write music, cook things, and occasionally engage in spats about sports-related frivolities. He tweets about all three -- and the latest from Red Alert and more -- at @cgdeaton.
