He was a member of the Riverside Community College Winter Drumline, playing electric bass, achieving a silver medal in 2004 and a gold medal in 2005 in the Winter Guard International circuit. Chris also performs in a classical music & dance company based in Laguna Beach called Sonatasia, and finished a promotional video in the spring of 2009 which can be found on YouTube. He is an active songwriter and performer on cello in his current band, The Lyrics Game, who was recently featured in OC Weekly and completed recording their EP, "Home Edition", which can be heard on and iTunes.

Chris is currently attending his last semester at The Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at CSU Long Beach, graduating with his BM in Music Education. He studies with Dr. David Garrett of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He also serves as a cello and bass coach for Fountain Valley High School, East Whittier Middle School, Los Alamitos High School and the South Coast Youth Symphony Orchestra in Mission Viejo, who recently toured Spain during the Summer of 2009 and will tour Great Britain in the Summer of 2011.

Chris was very friendly and willing to work with us on what songs we wanted to be played at our wedding. It was sometimes difficult to get into contact with him. The only small problem was his attire on the day of the wedding - perhaps there was a miscommunication but shorts & sandals are not generally good wedding attire.
