Chris comes to Orlando after spending five years in the high desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico. There, he was the weekend meteorologist at KRQE in Albuquerque. Before that, he worked in the Midwest at WHBF-TV in Rock Island, Illinois.
Chris became interested in weather while growing up in eastern Ohio. There, he got to watch everything from blizzards to severe storms, as well as flooding along the Ohio River. Throughout grade school and even high school, he would call in storm reports and the current weather conditions to local television stations in the area. Chris' teachers and classmates always referred to him as the weatherman, and he even had one teacher call him "Snowman."

Chris has received both the American Meteorological Society Certified Broadcast Meteorologist designation and National Weather Association Seal of Approval, professional recognitions for the quality of his weather broadcasts.
