A native of a small town in East Texas, Chris found a heart for the arts singing in the local church choir. And he found a heart for travel from his family’s adventures. As a professional actor, Chris worked in theatre performance for 15 years. Then, always looking for the next adventure, Chris invested in and helped run a well-known NY restaurant group, wrote a travel blog honoring his grandparents’ world travels, and is a licensed NY Real Estate Agent doing deals from Forest Hills to Harlem. Chris feels the siren call of travel beckons us all, and the arts will serve as our guide to seeing, experiencing, and understanding the world and ourselves.
