Technology Is Breaking Humanity

Technology is rapidly improving around us, all the while breaking us as humans. A century from now, historians and scientists will look back at these years and write volumes on how technology evolved society in a negative way. I'm not going Amish on you anytime soon, but as much as I love my gadgets and technology...

What I’d Love to See Announced at CES

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...

Teenager Technology Gifts

I hate to think about it, but the holidays are right around the corner and the other night my wife turned to me and asked, "Any ideas on what we are going to get the kids for Christmas?" Since my kids don't read my blog, I figured a quick post to give you ideas of great...

Fall Television Is Here And I’m Already Behind

The DVR is a beautiful invention and without it and my on-demand services from Verizon FiOS I don't think I'd ever watch television due to our busy schedules. With two teenagers in the house and four very different tastes in programming, we seem to have a list of shows which are for me and my...

Technology Could Help Keep Teen Drivers Safer

This morning marks another parenting milestone for me. The day my first child gets their drivers license. It has only been a few hours since I saw his smiling face after passing the driving test. I'm excited for him, but also scared to death. I know how many distracted and bad drivers there are out there...

Is Technology Getting in the Way of Our Humanity?

Life without a phone got me pondering about our love of technology. This morning getting a near real time update from my sister who is camping with my daughter and parents in Maine got me thinking even more. Combine all that with my buddy Christine calling me out for not doing a podcast in so long...

You Might Be Amazed at What Falling in a Waterfall Can Teach You

My family and I spent this past weekend camping in the Berkshires. Camping is an activity that we love to do as a family and the reality that we don't have many more summers to do this together is starting to hit home. This was the first camping trip for Nadia and when you have a...

Surviving Summer Vacation With and Without Technology

Todays world is full of parents who work from home. For the past nine years, I've been one of them. When summer vacation arrives, it comes with new challenges. Our home offices are no longer the sacred, quiet spaces that we love and thrive in. While some build a writing shed or a tiny house to...

Technology Makes Life Around My House More Fun

This weekend as we unplugged and headed outside to help kick off summer I got thinking about the balancing act between loving technology and being ok to leave it behind at the same time. It only takes one look at the above photo to see the variety of things you might find laying around my...

First Impressions of the FiOS Mobile App

As an itinerant, hours spent in airports is a common part of my life. Recently, I found myself alone at a gate early on a weekday morning waiting for others to arrive. Still in the haze of waking up, I mindlessly watched the television that was cycling through the standard airport fare of news and travel...

More Phones Need To Be Like the Motorola DROID Turbo

Right up front, you need to know that I was given a Motorola DROID Turbo phone for free as part of the VZWBuzz Influencer Program. We get access to a variety of devices and it is always fun when I like one enough to write about it. I made the switch to Android from iOS...

Birthdays and Technology

Today is my birthday. Google told me so. *grin* One of the few things on my to do list for the day included writing my monthly post as part of the #LifeOnFiOS team. While op-ed and thought pieces are not the usual fare for this type of post, I found it strangely relevant this morning and...

FiOS Quantum TV Gives Me Too Many Choices

We've had Verizon FiOS in our house from the first moment it was made available in our area. For years I had to sit by and lust over it while working on some of their earliest marketing campaigns during my Advance Guard days. Recently an ad popped up on my screen advertising their new FiOS Quantum...

When Kids Get Their First Smartphones

Everyone knows that technology is a big part of my life. One look in my bag, around my office or anywhere in this house and you'll find technology of every kind. Because of this, many people were surprised when I bring up that our kids have just received their first smart phones. Since a lot of people...

Samsung S5 – Hype or Habit Forming?

You should know that I've been a happy enough iPhone user for many years. All of my work is on Apple products. But, last year when I was given a Moto X to review I realized that Android was the mobile OS for me. It gave me more power, flexibility and customization than iOS ever...

If Titanfall is the Future of Gaming, I Won’t Be Playing Much

This week Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment released Titanfall. Rarely do I get as excited about a new game as I was for this one. After playing the BETA and seeing first hand how amazing this game was I couldn't wait for it to arrive. This morning I popped the disc in and began to play...

Samsung Galaxy NX Changes the Photography Landscape

Honestly, I never thought I'd be typing these words about a camera from Samsung. Yes, they make great televisions (I own several) and recently they've come on strong in the phone market, but the camera world has always been dominated by others. Over the last six months I've been taking part in the #ImageLogger program...

Plantronics Voyager Legend Review

Any piece of technology that makes getting work done easier is one that I'll love. For years I've bought and been impressed with products from Plantronics. Since my iPhone is also my office phone, I've always had a Bluetooth headset so that I could talk and easily use my computer at the same time. I've been...

The Shift

The shift is happening if we like it or not. The web is becoming wearable. Consumption of content is evolving. Vevo is the new MTV and we willingly click on links to watch advertisements on YouTube. Yesterday, as we recorded the latest episode of Media Hacks, we were discussing all of these things. Later on Facetime,...

My Instagram Decision

I love to experience life to the fullest and share those experiences with the world around me. It is part of my DNA as an explorer and storyteller. The tools of social media empower me to do this in ways I couldn't have imagined just a few short years ago. It wasn't easy for me to...

Of Simpler Times on the Train

Today I'm commuting to New York City on the Acela Express. I've done this trip so many times that I've lost count. But, this morning my train ride is filled with a mix of emotions as Amtrak moves forward with technology and it has me feeling a bit nostalgic.

Sketch of C.C. Chapman by Hey Instigator!There are many aspects OF who I am and what I do. Putting together THIS PAGE is one of my least favorite things to write because talking about myself is not my idea of a fun time.

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 headshots can be found below.

Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…


I’m constantly writing and always working on my next book. You may have read some of my published works including Amazing Things Will HappenContent Rules or 101 Steps to Making Video Like a Pro.

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 Canon 80D, an iPhone 7+ and a Chroma 4k Drone.

My photos can be found on Instagram and Flickr.

Keynote Speaker

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.

Advocate & Volunteer

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.

I’m currently the President of the Board at Wediko, a member of the ONE Girls & Women Advisory Board, serve on the board of The Hockey Foundation and recently joined the No Kid Hungry Social Council.


Helping others learn and inspiring them to achieve their goals is the most fulfilling thing I do. As a Visting Instructor of Business and Management at Wheaton College and as an Adjunct Professor of Marketing and Communications at Bentley University I get to do this with the next generation. I’ve also developed and taught courses for LinkedIn, CreativeLive, and Treehouse.


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.

Fun Bio

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:

9 C Medway Road #117
Milford, MA

Current relationships include:

  • Verizon FiOS provides me with service in exchange for a monthly post on technology of my choosing
