Chris Lavergne is the Founder and Publisher of Thought Catalog. The website posts hundreds of articles a day from emerging and established writers. It publishes everything from fun “listicles” to experimental fiction to news and opinion. Since launching in February 2010, Thought Catalog has grown exponentially and now has over 30 million monthly readers. Chris—who’s direct, professional, and practically nonexistent on social media—gave us a glimpse into his life by sharing his MakeSpace bin’s contents.
Chris is a traveler and has been everywhere from China to Kenya to Canada, so he stowed an expired passport full of stamps from interesting places. He also tucked away a stack of books by longtime Thought Catalog contributors—titles such as Tao Lin’s Taipei and Chelsea Fagan’s I’m Only Here for the WiFi, as well as literary classics such as Virgil’s The Aeneid and Dante’s The Divine Comedy. On a more practical note, Chris decided to store his space heater now that it looks as if we’ve seen the last of the polar vortex.
