Oh hai there! Welcome to my blog. My name’s Chris, but you may know me from the Club Penguin Team based on my retired account, Polo Field.
I used to work at Club Penguin. For a long time, too — from 2006-2015.
For a while, I was Club Penguin’s archivist, keeping track of files and all the different interesting things that happened in CP history. The reason? For smart use and re-use of content for stuff like consumer products, etc.
Most importantly to me, to one day tell the story.
I love wikis, forums, timelines and other cool tech stuff like that. I’ve also written a few things, like the Paint By Letters books that were in the Book Room a long time ago. Prior to Club Penguin, I was a music journalist and used to write about bands and albums. It was my music writing background that helped me become a member of the Club Penguin Team.
But most of all, I love creative worlds with lots of music. I love creating universes full of characters and stories and mysteries. My first virtual world experience was with Microsoft Comic Chat, and joining Club Penguin was a dream come true.
Some players that were around in 2007 might remember me from the Miniclip Forums, otherwise known as the “MCCP.”
I’d show up there every once in a while with other staff members at the time like Screenhog, Ice Pinapple and Hamustar. My Miniclip Forum avatar featured a panda with a red keytar — an instrument that eventually found its way into Club Penguin, too. 😉
You can find me anytime on Twitter at @redkeytar, or right here on this blog.
Bye for now!
