Chris grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. He was sustained by science fiction and fantasy novels, comic books, video games, and reruns of Whose Line Is It Anyway (the original British version) until he went to college in Mt. Vernon, IA, where he discovered he could *do* improv.
He practiced with the Cornell College improv troupe for several years, performing not often. He then moved to Cedar Rapids, IA, where he joined and performed with Comics in Action (now sadly defunct). He relocated back to Chicago for several years, where he trained with ComedySportz Chicago, and then moved back to Iowa before relocating with his family to Greenville SC for work in the summer of 2019. He quickly leaned about Alchemy, started going to the open jams, taking classes, and is excited about being able to join the Alchemy family!
