Chris started life like most humans, covered in placenta and with minimal motor skills. After a few awkward years, Chris learned to use both hands and feet to eventually become a sought after groove-oriented drummer throughout the Boston music scene.
During the ‘90s Chris was 1/3rd of an original power trio that went by the name Amongus. Their music was an eclectic blend of influences ranging from Primus, King Crimson, and Stone Temple Pilots poured over a bed of Red Hot Chili Peppers. They enjoyed a wild run headlining major rock clubs from Boston to New York City and beyond. The band eventually broke up due to a 2-year battle between 2 bandmates over different colored chat bubbles.
Chris’s musical and personal journey continued as he performed with several bands throughout New England while juggling marriage and a family. Currently, Chris is enjoying providing the pulsating rhythms for a very popular cover band; The Boston Naturals - five talented musicians who've hurled their worn and battered musical carcasses into the abyss of the Boston music scene for the pleasure of those who flock to see them. With upwards of 100 shows per year throughout New England, Chris remains one of the hardest working drummers in the business.
