Christopher Chapman, pseudonymously known as m3mnoch, began his media career as the co-founder of an interactive agency responsible for one of the world's first 500 web sites and building one of the first internet E-Commerce stores in 1996. This was the whetstone where he honed a fluency in both http and color.
Since then he’s developed award-winning works for a passel of deeply diverse organizations ranging from Universal Pictures and Hasbro to Hewlett-Packard and Motorola to Ore-Ida and ConAgra to Disney and DiC Entertainment. However, in 2017, the lure of Web3 proved heady enough to drag him out of the physical workshops of Walt Disney Imagineering and into the digitally scarce world of NFTs.
