The Secret Life of Twincy’s Chris Kallal

City Pages digs into the background of food PR (and former Metromix) guy Chris Kallal, and boy does it bring the dirt. The story includes reports of identity theft, two-timing, and other assorted monkeyshines. Up until now, Kallal’s Twincy company may have been best known for the chaotic opening of client Thom Pham’s Wondrous Azian Kitchen.

    So what happened to this guy? I hope he had to pay but heard he works for a local marketing agency now. Sad that he is employable after doing that.
