Chris grew up in the Midwest on a farm in south-central Kansas where much of his family still resides today. His ingenuity and hard work ethic is attributed to the experiences he gained throughout his childhood.

Aside from creating memories with his kids, in his spare time, you’ll find Chris working on the latest project around the house and enjoying time with family and friends.
