Chris was born and raised in Baltimore, MD and is the youngest of 7 children.
He graduated from Loyola High School and Villa Julie College.
Chris started his career at Alex Brown in 1993 and one year later learned that his mother Susannah was given six months to live with leukemia.
She was a determined woman who was going to decide when her time came.
During the eighteen months, before she passed in November 1995, Chris had promised his mother he would keep her memory alive, since she gave so much to so many people.
In 2006, he founded the Cool Kids Campaign Foundation and with the incredible support from so many, it continues to grow.
“I am very fortunate to be in this position surrounded by so many caring, compassionate people as we help our Cool Kids families. I sincerely hope our good work can continue for decades to come.”
