Chris is a proud Pittsburgh native and grew of in the South Hills area of the city. He graduated from Upper St. Clair High School and then continued to college at Washington & Jefferson College where he played soccer.  Today, Chris once again resides in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh, and in his spare time loves to continue to play soccer and basketball.  He is an avid sports fan and is highly committed to fantasy sports of all kinds.  If you let him, Chris will talk your ear off about both collegiate and professional sports.  And if you ask, Chris will likely also share his opinions on NBA teams - though he is without a hometown team to root for.  Chris is also heavily involved in the community through his commitment to his church, the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Mt. Lebanon, PA, Animal Friends, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Chris also thoroughly enjoys spending time with his friends and family.  He comes from a very close-knit family, his Mother, Father, Sister, Nieces, Nephews, Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles all live within 10 miles of each other between Upper St. Clair, Peters Twp., and North Strabane.  Chris also loves reliving his glory days on the field and court by cheering his niece on during her various sports games!
