As a guest recently on Randi Zuckerberg's SiriusXM Radio Show I was asked to provide five of my favorite apps as a "digital dad." My kids are teenagers and I don't think there are apps I use specifically for parenting, so I took a bit of a different approach in the hope that the listeners...
When asked what you'd like to see me create in 2016 many of you answered with some version of more teaching items. So, when I was asked why I thought Snapchat was going to have such a great year, I decided to make a video explaining how I use Snapchat. Right now it is one of...
Alastair Humphreys introduced me to the term Microadventures in his latest book. The concept is that people feel they need to go on a three month expedition to a far off land to have an adventure, when in fact a single overnight in the wild of your backyard can be just as stimulating. This is a concept...
Since April 2014 I've been lost. The stories of the months since then are for another time, but needless to say there have been some dark days and lonely times. 2016 is all about putting those behind me finally and successfully moving forward. Once I had determined that focus, going through my yearly three word exercise was...
This morning I was pondering ways that Verizon could improve their FiOS App by giving me the ability to download content I've recorded on my DVR to watch anytime I'm traveling. They now allow you to stream DVR recorded shows, but I want to watch it without a WiFi connection. If they really want to make...
The end of the year is always a powerful time for me to look back at the last twelve months and ponder where I've been and what I've seen. Being a photographer means that I take photographs every single day and over the course of a year that means thousands of photos. Thank you again to...
End of the year + Christmas + My Birthday = C.C. in a reflective mood. This latest journey around the sun was better than the last one and yet I feel as if I have not accomplished much. I spoke on stages from Seattle to The Netherlands, had my life outlook changed by attending my first...
My grandfather designed, built and flew model airplanes. These were not from kits or out of a box. I remember the first time he handed me the controls and asked if I wanted to land one for him. What little kid would say no? Of course, I ended up crashing it. Fast forward to this morning...
Tonight I have the last Board meeting of the year for Wediko. I've served on the Board for a number of years and am now the President of the Board. Wediko Children’s Services is a non-profit organization committed to improving children’s lives. Using a strength-based approach, Wediko responds to the needs of children who face repeated...
Sadly, our country doesn't treat those who fight wars for us very well. All it takes is one look at the number of veteran focused charities to know that they exist to fill the gap left by our own government. I'm blessed to have friends and family who have donned the uniform to protect our country...

When asked what I do my current answer is, “I create, teach and motivate people to do more good in the world.”
Of course, that doesn’t cover all that I work on professionally and personally, so that is why I created this page.
Official bios and head shots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
With over twenty years of marketing, online media and community building experience I have the skills and experience to help your organization no matter the size. Previous clients have included The Coca-Cola Company, American Eagle Outfitters and HBO.
I focus on social good/impact marketing, content marketing and brand strategy. My favorite clients are NGOs, nonprofits or brands looking to make a difference in the world.
Feel free to double check my credentials on LinkedIn.
Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.
If I had to choose a style, I’d say my photos are a mix of documentary, travel and lifestyle photography. While I may not enjoy taking head shots, I love to shoot faces. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in my hand and I’ve been fortunate to see my photos on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
I’m currently shooting with a Samsung NX1 and a Chroma 4k Drone.
I’m happiest when on stage educating and inspiring an audience of any size, anywhere in the world.
I have spoken at everything from large international events, corporate retreats and at special gatherings of unique individuals. If you need someone who will inspire, educate and entertain your audience I’d love to chat.
I believe in using my skills, time and voice to champion causes that are important to me. I’m especially interested in anything military, dogs or children focused.
On top of all that I’m a proud life long New Englander who was born and raised in New Hampshire, but now resides outside of Boston.
I married my high school sweetheart, have two amazing kids and love being a dad.
I’ve been online since 1989, began blogging in 2002 and podcasting in 2004.
Previous endeavors I created include Accident Hash, Passion Hit TV, Digital Dads and The Advance Guard.
Tattoos, travel and the outdoors turn me on. There are fewer things more perfect than a well done cocktail, a delicious meal or live art of any sort. I love my GORUCK, Field Notes and am a proud Misfit.
To understand me is to understand that I try to live a purposeful life every day that is full of adventure, love and making the world around me a better place for all.
C.C. Chapman describes himself as a New England raised storyteller, explorer and humanitarian. Others have described him as a thought leader in the online marketing space, a grounded futurist and one the nicest guy on the Internet. Over the years of his career he has worked with a variety of clients including Nike, HBO, American Eagle Outfitters, ONE, Verizon FiOS and The Coca-Cola Company.
He is the co-author of the International bestseller Content Rules and is also the author of Amazing Things Will Happen. He travels the world speaking in front of audiences to do more in the world and how to understand content marketing better. C.C. has taught classes for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and now as an adjunct professor at Bentley University (where he also graduated from).

He is a Samsung Imagelogger, the original ONE Dad and a UN Foundation Social Good Fellow. As a storyteller for hire, his work has appeared on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
C.C. serves as the Chairman of the Board at Wediko and serves on the board of The Hockey Foundation. He happily lives in the woods outside of Boston with his loving family. Find out more at CC-Chapman.com
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more multi-faceted or enthusiastic creative/strategic partner in the marketing and content creation fields. This greatly hails from C.C.’s unstoppable combination of marketing experience and savvy (which a great many professionals claim to have), and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself (which a great many professionals do not). The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.
C.C. Chapman sports the pro cred to be a talker (working closely with such clients as American Eagle Outfitters, Coca-Cola, HBO and Warner Bros.), and the passion and gumption to be a doer (creating content for the emerging Online Dad market, marketing professionals, music fans and more). He’s helped create, manage and execute ambitious online and offline marketing campaigns for startups and multinationals — and has the invaluable good sense to know which outreach strategies work with audiences, and which ones fall flat.
He authoritatively speaks your language. He speaks your CMO’s language. Most important, he’s fluent in your market’s language. It’s a killer double-chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination. Contact C.C. to learn how he can help your organization achieve its business goals. There’s even more to know about C.C. Chapman, if you want to read it — and you should. C.C.’s skills are an embarrassment of riches.
I’m involved with a lot of organizations and clients. I believe in being completely transparent and open about everything I’m working on. I’ll do my best to keep this updated and of course will clearly disclose relationships in any post that require them.
I am open to being pitched and invited on press trips.
Companies do send me items in the hopes that I will review it or share with my community. If you send me something it does not guarantee a review.
With that in mind, my mailing address is:
