Chris is happy to call the Heart of Virginia home!

He is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, so naturally, he is a fan of the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins!

Chris attended Point Park University in Pittsburgh, where he double majored in Broadcast Journalism and TV production. While he was there, he covered President Barack Obama’s visit to Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania Gubernatorial race, and the Point Park women’s basketball national tournament runs.

After graduation, Chris moved down to Eastern North Carolina, where he worked for the ABC affiliate in New Bern. He covered everything from tropical storms to Marine homecomings.

He then moved back to the Keystone State where he worked at the Fox affiliate in York. While there he did stories with state legislators and covered the historic snow of 2016, which was more than two feet!

Chris joined the ABC 13 team in February 2017 and looks forward to bringing the stories of the Heart of Virginia into your home.

In his free time, he enjoys watching sports, spending time outside, and watching Netflix.

If you see Chris out, make sure to say hello!
