WHERE HE CALLS HOME: Denver, CO
HIS STORY: Originally from Detroit, MI, Chris lived in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., before settling down in Denver, CO in 2015. In Colorado he learned that high altitude and rocky mountain trails made for a better running environment than flat city concrete and threw himself into big mountain ultras. Chris now spends his weekends in the mountains with friends training, camping, and exploring new trails. He is one of the founders of Front Range Cross Country (FRXC) a trail and ultrarunning group in Colorado's Front Range, and loves to share his excitement for public lands and running as a vehicle for personal growth, discovery, and development. Chris is a running coach with Resilient Running Project, is proud to represent Merrell and GU brands through his outdoor pursuits, and has been published in Ultrarunning Magazine and Trail Runner Magazine. During the day, Chris works as a telecommunications and real estate attorney in Denver's oldest law firm, Sherman & Howard.
HIS STOKE OF CHOICE: "Darker roasts from Colombia or Brazil, brewed in an Aeropress and served black!"
