Currently he manages Sound Hype/DJ company, Drone Photography company and of course THOSE GUYS. As a matter of fact he began a vending company in sixth grade selling candy bars and sodas. This would continue through high school as he would earn a few thousands dollars. Much of this money was used to fund the startup of THOSE GUYS. Christopher began playing music in kindergarten when he would take up the violin. He studied under Anna Wagner,( Orlando Symphony) and Clair Knots, (Doctoral Candidate/ Florida State University). Once in Middle School, Christopher decided to learn the saxophone. He would study under Dan Ferri, (Adjunct Professor of Saxophone at Stetson University and Seminole State College. Additionally, Music Studio owner) and Ray Guiser, (Professional musician positioned in Daytona Beach, FL.). Christopher would go on to earn many superior ratings at District Solo and Ensembles events throughout Volusia County, Florida. Christopher would take First Chair Alto Saxophone for several years in the All County Band. Christopher plays a 1980 black nickel Guardala alto saxophone, on a meyer 6m mouthpiece, with size 3 Java green box reeds. Christopher loves contemporary jazz and of course…the classical jazz standards. Christopher enjoys fishing, swimming, surfing, shooting and camping as well as Mustangs. One of Christopher’s main passions is working out and staying fit. Christopher enjoys traveling especially with his college friends and brother.
