Last night Emily and I enjoyed opening night for The Boston Ballet's season with a performance of Onegin. We were invited as press and given two free tickets to attend the show. Ballet is an art form that I never fully appreciated until we began to attend performances on a semi-regular basis. With every performance I...
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...
Any minute now, the snow will begin to fall and it should stop sometime on Tuesday. Depending on which channel you put your television on, the forecast calls for anywhere from a whole lot to are you kidding me. Yes, we got more snow in a recent ten day period than an average winter in this...
Nokia is a company that understands how to work with influencers. Their approach seems to be to gather a variety of online influencers in a great city, bring them on a series of mini adventures and give them Lumia phones to document everything. Last year, I spent a weekend with them in Vegas and earlier this...
A cool wind blows in off the harbor with the smell of salt and the sounds of planes taking off from Logan. We have a late start today on our Boston Team Lumia Experience and while I can only sleep in for so long, I wanted to get out and walk around the city a...
Going to college and now living in the Boston area, you'd assume that I've been to my share of Boston Marathons. I live two and a half miles from the starting line and have seen the finish line numerous times before the actual running. Yet, I had never watched in person. After the tragic events of...
This past weekend The Boston Ballet invited Emily and I to come and experience this year's performance of The Nutcracker. It was her first time and only my second time going to the ballet and we had a great time.
My accountant of all people reminded me that as someone who works for themselves, I should make sure I take time out and enjoy life more often. So, when Friday rolled around and I had two meetings in Boston and no other pressing deadlines I decided to grab my camera and walk the streets between...
Just after the new year I bought myself a Canon PowerShot S90IS to be my bring every where camera. I had been thinking about getting a Leica D-Lux 4, but after a quick ask on Twitter everyone was pointing me to the S90. I have to say that I am loving this camera so far....
If you are not aware, on the first Sunday of every month in Jamaica Plains media makers of every type and age gather for some great breakfast and conversation. From the brain of Steve Garfield, Boston Media Makers has become one of the must go to events for me personally because I like the...
I love to take photos, but you knew that. At this past weekend's Podcamp Boston 4, I took a bunch of them (complete set here) and put together my annual slide show of some of my favorites. Special thanks to Matthew Ebel for allowing me to use his music. Give his music a listen on...
I took this picture of Emily last weekend when she let us know she had a loose tooth and then moments after I took this photo, pulled it out herself. Did you do that when you were a kid? I know I certainly never did. Dylan got back from camp yesterday. He had an absolute...

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.

He is the co-author of the International bestseller Content Rules and is also the author of Amazing Things Will Happen.

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:
