Chapter Raptor CEO Jonathan Walczak has worn a variety of hats in recent years – editing a multimedia news website, reporting for a daily newspaper, helping to coordinate governmental affairs for a nonprofit and traveling as a photographer for a presidential campaign. In 2009, after four months of painstaking work, he and a colleague helped reopen a 36-year-old cold case murder in Asheville, N.C. He believes the future of publishing and the media will be determined by entrepreneurs and innovators.
Lorin Mallorie has spent much of the past year in Haiti, working with a series of NGOs and freelancing for several publications. In the aftermath of 2010's devastating earthquake, Mallorie saw the strength and kindness of the Haitian people. She also saw a dark side, one of human misery. In Chapter Raptor's initial stages, Mallorie chatted with Walczak online as a machete-wielding mob burned down the mayor's house several blocks away.
