WHERE HE CALLS HOME: Portland, OR
HIS STORY: Chris has been involved in education at almost every moment of his adult life, going back to his days as an environmental education teacher on the coast of Maine in the early 2000's. He has taught high school English, coached soccer teams, and has run his own coaching business, now CBCG, since 2011. Nearly by default, he identified his talent in triathlon after college and has raced as a professional triathlete since 2006, training under Cliff English since 2009. Since then he clinched multiple professional podia spots, perennially placing at what is now Challenge Penticton, and recently finishing with a 8:35 iron-distance result as the top American at the 2015 Challenge Roth. He serves as the director of the U.S. Masters Swim group at Nike World Headquarters, an assistant coach for Cliff English, and Head Coach for CBCG.
HIS STOKE OF CHOICE: "Straight up black coffee. Lighter roasts. My aeropress is used well."
