Growing up in a very inspiring and creative environment, Chris' childhood dream was to be an oceanographer or astronaut. But there was something about Hollywood and the movies that drew his attention and piqued his interest. The first people to encourage him in that direction were Paul Newman and Jim Brolin, whom he met and interacted with throughout his childhood and teenage years given his parents’ involvement with Auto Racing.
