C.K. Sample

EVP of Technology

Despite achieving excellence in their respective fields, no one at Chaotic Moon is a single-subject specialist. And the multi-talented man leading that charge has to be C.K. Sample III. He’s a honed creative talent directing teams of developers and forging on-point product strategy.

C.K. is a veteran in early-stage web startups and holds a strong editorial background. He’s spent the last decade collecting impressive titles at even more impressive companies like AOL, Mahalo.com, Crowd Fusion and Ceros. He designs and implements cloud-hosted product solutions for a number of large web and mobile properties, and most importantly, he’s the guy behind the core strength of Chaotic Moon.

John Fremont

EVP of Business Development

With two decades of experience in sales and business development under his belt, John Fremont has seen a thing or two. He’s reached his level of success by building and growing relationships with a creative, consultative approach.

He’s responsible for overseeing all business development, sales and marketing activities for Chaotic Moon. However, due to his keen insight and diverse experience in emerging tech industries, he also partners with the CEO on overseeing the product team. Fremont spends his time understanding markets, architecting strategies and following through to development. If you don’t want to uncover the next big thing in your industry, and get it done right, you should probably avoid this guy.  
"In reality, the lines between creative developer and technologist are not neatly drawn, and many creative developers have some technology expertise as well. . . examples include chaotic moon."
