Chris grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland on Kent Island. After being accepted to Full Sail University, he moved to Orlando, Florida where he lived for 2 and a half years before graduating in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Arts and Design. His first job out of college was Mid-Atlantic Sign Solutions in Owings Mills, MD where he remained for two and half years. There, he worked as a designer but with many other responsibilities including production, estimates, and even some installs. In 2009 he won a contest to design a pace car for a NASCAR race, and in 2011 he sold the rights to a personal project to FX Networks.
In his free time, Chris is an avid auto racing fan, trying to attend at least one race of some kind a year.
