Chris was born in San Diego, CA and raised in Menifee, CA and graduated from Paloma Valley High School. He earned a BA in Liberal Studies from SDSU, home of the all-star Kawhi Leonard (Go Aztecs Go!), and worked both in education and in many odd jobs, that often included independent contractor work, before joining the team at High Tech. Chris has a passion for teaching and learning, and believes that every student has a voice, a talent, a dream, a uncovered inspiration and above all, potential to succeed! He enjoys learning about all things, and believes that the desire to learn the world around in both the seen and unseen it the key of better understanding of all things both inwardly and in relation. In his free time, Chris enjoys exploring, being outdoors, playing sports (Especially Basketball), volunteering, Chess and learning new things. You may also find him with his wife doing something: it could be puzzling, watching a movie, exploring San Diego, or probably something random.
