Chris grew up in central Florida taking his first Marine related job at 13 as a dock hand and a boat washer at a local marina on Lake Harris. He was a competitive wakeboarder and also fished avidly in his teens. He moved to Jacksonville (because of the ocean) at 18 to attend University of North Florida for business and marketing. His senior year in 2010, he got his foot in the door at the largest marina in North Florida as a detailer. He was put in his first boat show as a helper and ended up selling more boats than the other sales people thus finding his dream career. He worked at the location until 2018 and moved to Fort Lauderdale to expand his horizons. His focus is to relay his knowledge to help his clients find their dream boat at the best price and to safely enjoy the water as much as he does.
