Chris grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia and attended the University of Victoria where he majored in History. From here he followed the love of his life to Melbourne, Australia, where he was eventually drawn to the study of law because of its pervasive influence and intellectual depth, not to mention the prospect of being the butt of all those great lawyer jokes. Chris is currently practicing as a lawyer in Melbourne but hopes to make his way back to the idyllic west coast of Canada one day soon. He is passionate about health and fitness, and particularly relishes his Saturday morning bike ride. Chris has had an inquisitive mind from a young age and can’t help himself from asking the big questions, as much as he wishes he could ignore them sometimes. Before his current job, Chris worked in a variety of jobs hoping to find that elusive ‘calling’…he is still looking. Along the way, he has met a myriad of people from all walks of life and he has learned a lot about himself and life generally in the process. As he gets older, he has realized that life has few easy answers and he is increasingly convinced that the greatest things in life are the simple pleasures, a cliché that has turned out to be true. He hopes one day to live in a cabin in the woods surrounded by his closest friends.
