Cool Peep of the Week: Christopher Lynch
WHO IS THIS COOL PEEP: Christopher Lynch
Christopher Lynch is the co-founder and managing partner of Everyday California, responsible for design, web development and implementation of the company’s long and short-term plans.
Lynch, along with co-founder Michael Samer, purchased OEX Dive & Kayak—a then-small kayak operation—in 2010. The duo rebranded the water sports shop into a notable lifestyle company, extending the adventure offering and launching a premium California-sourced apparel line.
Before diving into action water sports, Lynch pursued a career in finance, spending nearly six years as a client services manager for Lynch Investment Management, and two years at entry-level positions with Altegris Investments and Wachovia Securities Financial Network. Lynch also has an interest in acting and spent time studying the craft at the famed Beverly Hills Playhouse.
He grew up in Modesto, California and moved to San Diego to attend San Diego State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics.
What are a few of your favorite things?
I enjoy surfing, golfing and a good brunch.
When you are home alone and you think no one is watching, what are the quirky things you do?
I’m a pretty big nerd at heart! When I’m alone, I tend to unwind by playing Xbox or watching documentaries.
What’s your favorite haunt?
My favorite spot in town is the Bayside Landing in Pacific Beach. I live just a couple of blocks away and I’m a huge sports fan and beer guy and they always have plenty of both!
Empty your pockets right now. Be honest, what did you find?
In my pockets I’ve got an iPhone, keys, wallet and a note from a flight attendant to send her information about the house I just got back from in Costa Rica!
What is one thing that no one would guess about you?
Walking down the street, I don’t think anyone would guess that I’m a business owner and an entrepreneur because I’m normally wearing jeans and a t-shirt. I’m the guy who walks into a meeting full of people in suits wearing a SD ball cap and Vans.
What’s playing on your iTunes?
Where can we find you next?
Next up, you can find me at the Woholle Juice Box in La Jolla Shores, a new juice company that we’re opening in April 2016! Our mission is to provide quick, healthy and tasty foods, juices and smoothies that are locally sourced and promote a healthy lifestyle while having a positive impact on the community.
