A native of New Orleans, LA, Chris graduated from LSU - University of New Orleans in 2000. He moved to Charlotte, NC to open his first nutritional franchise and his own audio/video company in 2003. A lifelong passion for tactical weapons and training and a desire to learn self defense techniques drew Chris to Krav Maga. Under the direction of Ryan Hoover and his team of instructors, Chris excelled at learning the mindset, tactics and skills necessary to prevail in a violent confrontation. Chris' positive energy and innate ability to help instruct others made him a perfect candidate to teach at FTF®. His two children, employees and businesses motivate him to continue training and re-enforce his passion for personal protection and self defense.
