Chris hails from Baltimore County, Maryland, graduating from the Park School of Baltimore before receiving his bachelor’s degree in marketing communication, cum laude, from Emerson College in Boston. Chris worked in account management in the pharmaceutical advertising and insurance industries before attending law school at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. While in law school, he participated in a year-long clinical program, which partnered with the University of Maryland Medical System to provide legal aid to individuals living with HIV to reduce stressors that can exacerbate health conditions.
