Born in northern Michigan in 1986, Chris has been surrounded by music all of his life. "I was always the one that was finding a rhythm in the strangest sounds - I remember tapping a drum beat to the sound of a radiator clunking when I was in middle school." Having played the piano for years by the age of 12, music was a part of his blood. In order to express himself artistically, he started dance. He went on to attend the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy for dance and piano in high school, prodiving even more experience in the arts.
