Meet Chris Gearhart, the Mill Shop’s Director of Engineering. With 10 years of experience in design and fabrication, he’s built up quite the resume. He’s passionate about high-quality output and he loves engaging in new challenges.

Chris was born and raised in San Diego, California, and currently resides in the city of Carlsbad. When it comes to hobbies, Chris has no shortage of them. To name just a few, Chris enjoys riding his bike down the coast, camping by the beach, playing the guitar, making his own hot sauces, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, and riding motorcycles. He’s also a “tech guy” and is always intrigued by the latest developments in the tech world.

Want to know a fun fact about Chris? He can solve a Rubik's cube in under two minutes. While that’s extremely impressive, he admits that he’s still waiting for that skill to make a meaningful impact on his life. His favorite place to be is at the Mill Shop, his favorite foods include tacos and BBQ, and he’s quite the foodie - “I collect restaurants to visit in my Yelp app like Pokémon cards.” He also enjoys the outdoors and follows the music industry market data for no particular reason.
