About Chris

Ok so you’re here, reading my blog.  But do you know anything about me?

I was the eighth child of ten children born to a working-class family in Gary, IN.  In my early years I performed with my brothers and later went on to record the highest-selling album of all times.

Wait, that was Michael Jackson!

So in retrospect, I’m just a regular guy. I am a seasoned fundraising and marketing professional with more than 18 years in the non-profit sector. I love the outdoors and enjoy spending time hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking. Growing up in Boston, I remain a die-hard fan of the Red Sox & Patriots but after living in the south I fell in love with NASCAR! Since 2009 I have been the co-host of The Sideliners Show podcast (currently on semi-permanent hiatus). I am also a self-professed social media addict and spreadsheet geek.
