Chris joined Team RWB in the fall of 2016 after he participated in the Old Glory Relay in Seattle.  Upon retirement from the Army, Team Red, White and Blue has filled his need to serve others through a powerful movement of like-minded individuals.  He and his wife, Kristina, chose the Pacific Northwest to focus on family, quality of life and a connection with the community values found in small town America.  They believe that in this environment, they can be their best selves.  Team Red, White and Blue has become a key part of facilitating that transition.

During the past three decades, Chris has gained extensive experience commanding, planning and executing special operations missions around the world.  Through facilitating the success of Partner Nation leaders, both General Officers and Government Leaders, in Afghanistan, the Balkans, Northwest Africa and Canada, he learned that we excel when we all work together.  His career allowed him to serve as a mentor, trainer and coach both in combat and uncertain environments at the strategic, operational and tactical level.  In this next chapter of his life, Chris founded his own leadership consulting company and is inspiring high performers to achieve heroic aspirations.

Chris stepped into the Chapter Captain position last month in Seattle and is pursuing an Eagle Leader Fellowship this year.  RWB allows Chris the opportunity to connect with a team of purposeful people and share the stoke skiing, hiking and biking the mountains, trails and logging roads in the Snoqualmie Valley.  Eagle Fire!
