Chris’ background and interests are ecletic.
Chris Charuhas grew up in Walkersville, MD, a small town in the agricultural heart of the state. After graduating from high school there in 1985, he went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in History from the College of William and Mary, and serve as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
In the mid 1990s he became a member of the Netpreneur Exchange, an early tech incubator. Shortly thereafter he founded his first company, Visibooks. A few years later, he started In Pictures, and its tutorials have been used by over four million people worldwide.
From 1997 to 2007, he taught classes in computer software at Johns Hopkins University, Northern Virginia Community College, Montgomery College, and the U.S. Department of the Interior. He also led a U.S. Department of Education research project to develop illustration-based textbooks for students with learning disabilities.
Chris has had a strong interest in philosophy since he was 13, and his first book on the subject, Let’s Get Integral, was published in 2014. An introduction to the school of philosophy known as Integral thought, it has been well-received in the Integral community.
His latest book is The Two Within You, which explains human personality in terms of the Kaneros framework. He also writes occasional essays on personality typing.
