Chris was born in Jacksonville NC but lived a transient life as a son of a Military father which has taken him to live in places in the far east like Manila, Philippines as well as Okinawa, Japan. He enjoyed seeing the world and experiencing various cultures even though he moved about every three years. While on the island of Okinawa, he learned to scuba dive and got PADI certified. He moved back to the States during the latter part of his teenage years. He has since resided in Northern VA where he finished high school and earned his A.A.S. in Information Technology/Security from ECPI College of Technology. When Chris has free time he enjoys family, fishing, exercise, fellowshipping with friends, and being a dog parent. With the experience of having worked all 12 steps of the recovery process, he has a passion for helping others through their recovery process.
