Chris wasn’t allowed to be around guns growing up, so he moved from Los Angeles, California and joined the United States Army. After deploying with the 82nd Airborne to Afghanistan and seeing combat, he left the Army and became an Independent Security Advisor, where he travelled to Syria, Japan and then back home to America. Since then, Chris has attended tactics and firearms training classes held by Pacific West Academy & Executive Security International. Chris is continuously honing his skills so that he can be an expert resource to his students. Along with this firearms training, Chris has had years of extensive bartender training; which has taught him to communicate with students from all walks of life.
