Chris was born and raised near Winston-Salem, North Carolina by his mom and grandma. He spent his childhood earning his black belt in Ishinryu and participating in his church's youth group. Raised by Demon Deacon fans, Chris was the first in his family to attend nearby Wake Forest University, where he earned a bachelors degree in biology and minored in chemistry. He continued his education at Wake Forest's medical school, where he was involved in the Family Medicine Interest Group, CMDA, and intramural sports. Throughout his life Chris has been dedicated to serving people, from volunteering at hospice to a medical service trip to the Dominican Republic to helping with Hurricane Katrina relief.

His desire to serve people led him to primary care upon entering medical school, where he can care for people at all levels of the social spectrum domestically and do service work overseas. Chris chose OHSU because he likes the broad curriculum for family medicine and is looking forward to being prepared for anything from academic to rural medicine
