In the hours that remain, Chris serves as one of the South Regional Resource Nerds for Love Thy Nerd and as a Pastoral Resident with Calvary Baptist Church in Columbus, GA. Previously, Chris managed the largest comic retail shop in North Carolina, as well as, served as the North Carolina Comicon Media/Communications Director.

He is the primary writer behind the book series "Faith & Fandom" and travels to dozens of comicons throughout the year with the books. He is married to a medical nerd named Danyelle and has helped co-create 3 small humans with her that resemble him in appearance and passions.
