Chris is a nationally certified interpreter with almost twenty years of experience. He began his interpreting journey in Milwaukee, WI. While working towards his B.A in Communications at Marquette University, Chris was exposed to ASL, the Deaf community, and interpreters through performing in a university theatrical production. This experience ignited the desire and passion to serve the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities and work towards equal and equitable access to communication and information for all.
Upon completing his undergraduate degree, Chris returned to school to attend the interpreter training program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He then moved to central Florida in 2006 where he has been a part of the Central Florida community ever since.
