Chris is a proud Army and Navy Academy alumnus, having attended the school for six years. During his time at the Academy, he was a performer in the Warrior Band and a frequent soloist at annual concerts. He explored a variety of interests while attending, participating in Harvard Model Congress, Varsity Water Polo and Swim Team, and Academic Decathlon. He was named Honor Council President, Beta Club President, and Battalion Information Officer in his senior year. Chris graduated as the class Salutatorian and earned the Silver “A” Award.

He went on to attend the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland before returning to Southern California to build a career in computing. He served as an Informational Technology Director in both the private and non-profit sectors. He has a long affiliation with Urban Street Angels, a charity that helps transition-age homeless youth get off the streets and make sustainable change in their lives.

Chris is happy to have returned home to Army and Navy Academy. As the Director of Information Technology, he is driven by a desire to see the next generation of students benefit from the extraordinary, game-changing opportunity that the Army and Navy Academy represents.
