His personal songwriting began with his first brain tumor diagnosis. It was an outlet and a way to chronicle his journey. He traveled many miles as a spokesperson for the National Brain Tumor Society and shared his story through music, enjoying playing with bands like Big Daddy Weave, Lincoln Brewster, and other bands and speakers.
Chris no longer travels and is currently still battling brain cancer with his 4th brain tumor in the past 21 years. Music helps him live each day to its fullest and then look forward to living the next one. He currently serves as a hospice educator for a national senior living company and his music time is reserved for jamming with his son.
