Chris Worth is a marketing hobo who spent a decade with advertising agencies in the capitals of Asia and Europe. Now a six-figure freelancer (obvs) he creates campaigns, content, and collateral for a roster of clients worldwide—mostly in the communications / media / technology and financial services sectors.
Dropping out of school at 16, he somehow managed an MBA later in life at the UK’s Warwick Business School. Interests include politics / philosophy / economics, physics, fitness, literature, architecture, personal / professional development, anything with wings or wheels, and all things tech. Outside nonfiction he pens the odd thriller as Mark Charteris and sci-fi short as Ted Bann, both more hobbies than jobbies. He’s clueless about music and doesn’t follow sports.
A seasoned traveller, he’s explored over 60 countries, from solo treks in the Javan jungle to 4x4 jaunts across the Sahara. Also a keen boulderer (rock climbing without the altitude) and qualified diver (sea and sky) he’s a calisthenics and kettlebells buff who works out daily with bag, ‘bells, bar, and body. (The best gym is within your skin.)
His creed is Objectivism, the “rules for living” defined by moral philosopher Ayn Rand. Politically he leans libertarian, favouring a limited state that protects individual rights. He’s also a minimalist: after ten years living out of a backpack, the contents of his first house never got beyond bed and bench, while his business infrastructure totals a laptop and phone. The dress code’s equally spartan, at jeans and a black T. But he’s never without his Kindle.
Chris lives in London with his wife Lynne, a polyglot law graduate, finance pro, and foodie with her own series of cookbooks out. Amid the literary haunts of Greenwich and Blackheath, they watch too many movies, enjoy too much food, drink too much wine, and do not enough Yoga to atone for it.
