Chris Petersen

Software Engineer

I’ve been fascinated by computers — both inside and out — ever since my parents brought home that first Apple IIe and I could build a pinball game that I could play on my TV, or type in some commands to make a digital “turtle” move around the screen. In high school my passion only grew, and I spent a great deal of time writing my own software programs and tinkering with any electronics I could get my hands on. When I got to college, I couldn’t see myself working in a cubicle for the rest of my life, so I followed a different path for my education. After earning degrees in Philosophy and Anthropology, I found my way back to my first passion: computers.  Now, I get to do something I love while also earning a living … and thankfully the dreaded cubicle has been easy to avoid.

I joined the team at Xinova because I love the challenges that come with building new things, and I believe that what we are building has the potential to improve people’s lives by changing the way that that we all solve problems. It also doesn’t hurt that I’m surrounded by some very smart people with experience in a variety of fields, so even our lunchtime conversations can be a great opportunity to learn something new.

These days when I am not at work, I spread my time between my family and hobbies. I try to keep hobbies balanced between things like designing widgets for my 3d printer, which often has me spending more time in front of a computer screen, and those like building things by hand out of wood that do the opposite.
