Christopher Rasch was raised a “Mormon hippie” in rural Idaho. He began his career researching whole organ cryopreservation, first for the Naval Medical Research Institute, then for 21st Century Medicine, a small biotech startup outside of LA. His days during that time were filled with rabbit kidney transplant surgery, and the occasional lab fire. He’s currently a senior programmer for Marketocracy Capital Management in San Mateo. He also blogs for deltaself and his personal blog craschworks.
