He was a full-time paragliding professional at age 17, ranking as one of North America's top ten cross-country paragliders for a full decade before winning the continent's championship and proving equal skill in jaw-dropping aerobatics. Chris is also a teacher's teacher. He's one of the world's foremost paragliding and powered paragliding instructors, and he serves as Instructor Administrator for the national organization for both sports. Chris lives and teaches in the world-class paragliding destination of Salt Lake City with his wife, son and daughter.
