Chris was born and raised in Kent, Ohio. He began his culinary career while working as the campus chef at Kent State University, which was a self-operation at the time.

In Jupiter, Chris was the lead chef for numerous country clubs. In 2000, Chris became the private chef to several business executives and traveled the world.

In his personal time, Chris enjoys visiting the beach or traveling. Chris' favorite dish to cook is Veal Ossobuco. Chris says, "This dish is simply a food of love. Often times, many people prefer quick meals – this dish takes time and patience to create, and it instigates a sense of appreciation when finished."
