Our Team

Chris Ott

Chief Operating Officer


Chris joined Mouse as Senior Director, Operations in January 2018. A Brooklynite by way of Houston, Amsterdam, Atlanta, and various parts of Michigan, Chris has an affinity for experiences and operations.

A closet chemist at heart, Chris entered the education space over a decade ago as a middle school science teacher and coach, and lead for operations and business side of Teach For America’s Houston residential training and leadership institute. Previously, he studied social science research methods and new media at the VU in the Netherlands, designed immersive learning summits for philanthropists with Teach For America’s national development team, and moonlit in increasing access to music education through an online teaching marketplace.

In addition to his work at Mouse, Chris doubles as the Chief Operating Officer at the partner organization Code/Interactive. You can usually find Chris checking out a gig, experimenting in the kitchen, or daydreaming about optimizing the human experience. www.thechrisott.com
