Chris grew up outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He graduated from East Stroudsburg University, where he competed as a Track & Field athlete and was involved with many different social groups on campus. It was there where he first realized his potential to make a positive impact on people, both physically and mentally though his ability to achieve a genuine connection with others. He is a sports fanatic and will watch all teams, but he is a Philly fan through and through. He enjoys traveling with his wife, he is a sneakerhead (loves his kicks) and loves classic hip hop and R&B music. Cool fact: his Grand Uncle played in the Negro Baseball League in the 1940’s for the Oakland Larks.
