Alumni Stories: English Major’s Startup Goes Live (UC Davis)

English Major's Startup Goes Live (UC Davis)

I recently did an interview with the UC Davis English department. As some of you might know, I graduated from UC Davis in 2011 as an English major with a minor in Economics and Asian American Studies. Being an English major has been a huge influence on my life, and I am super thankful for my education at Davis.

In the piece, I talk about what Huttle is and why we're making it as well as the value English majors can bring to tech companies. Give it a read, and let me know what you think!



Awesome interview, Chris! It's always great to get background information and behind-the-scenes stories.

And seeing as you are an English major, I'll take your book endorsements with a lot of weight! I'll trust your judgement and taste in literature.

Been meaning to add to my reading queue, so I'm going to look into Craig Thompson and Neil Gaiman. Thanks for namedropping!

Thanks for the kind words. If you're looking for some more reading, here's two more business books I've really enjoyed:
- The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz: Great book for anyone interested in building a company.

- Lean Startup by Eric Ries: If you’re interested in working at startups, this is a must-read. It explains the concept of a minimum viable product (MVP), how to build toward product/market fit, and how to succeed where others failed.

Lean Startup sounds very interesting; I'll keep both of these in mind as well. Thanks for sharing!
