Chris was born and raised in Mansfield, Ohio where he met Dyland and Walter in school. Chris started playing drums in the school band. By high school he was the stage band's main drummer and, with some high school friends, started a band called "Phantom" that played around Mansfield. After high school he moved into a house with Walter, Dyland and other high school friends just off-campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. There he started jamming with Dyland and Walter and the Liquid Air was born.

During his time in Columbus Chris also joined a local band called "The Unexpected" that played extensively around Columbus. After Walter moved to Los Angeles Chris moved to Athens, Ohio where he pursued an Art major at Ohio University. There he joined the band "Appalachian Death Ride" or ADR for short. ADR recorded several records and CDs and toured throughout Ohio and the eastern United States.

Chris teamed up with Walter to create the sound track for the independent feature "The Men in Black" during this time. He also directed and produced a feature length video "Season of Shadows" for which he also provided the soundtrack. After leaving Athens, Chris moved to Chicago where he lived for several years working on projects with other artists and musicians.
