Chris Worthy

Writer and editor

United States

After a few years of practicing law, I figured out that my favorite parts of the job were the parts I’ve done for more than 20 years now as a writer. I get to tell stories, gather and share information, and – hopefully – put some good in the world. That career shift was a leap of faith. The path continues to wind and evolve, as all good paths do. Join me, will you? There are plenty of stories to share.

When I'm not at the computer, you will find me spending time with my husband watching good sci-fi or walking along a trail somewhere, enjoying the company of our kids (who somehow became grown adults), and rejoicing in new grandparenthood.

In addition to feature writing and editorial consulting, I'm head over heels for my latest project: a book about the importance of cultivating awe experiences for a better life. From the moon (literally) to a convent and everywhere in between, the folks I've interviewed have been changed by the impact of awe. It's pretty amazing stuff and I am honored to share what they have taught me.
