Growing up in the countryside of Central New York, Chris promptly moved to NYC right out of high-school and later earned his BFA in Photography from SUNY Purchase.  After doing some time enlisted in the US Navy, he attended The School of Visual Arts MFA in Photo, Video and Related Media in NYC and spends his time between there and his home in CNY. While considering himself well rounded in practice and technique, he is drawn towards political events, breaking news, editorials and candid imagery for his personal work.  He is particularly interested working with non-profits and volunteers, civil/public servants, the disenfranchised and people with humanistic leanings and interesting experiences they're willing to share.  His work has been featured in numerous online publications such as Cosmopolitan, Feature Shoot, Bustle, We Call it Stitch, La Republicca, and Il Post.
