Chris is a proud graduate of Castro Valley High School and San Jose State University who is glad to be back home in the Bay Area.  KCBS hired Chris in 2006.

Before coming to KCBS, Chris was a reporter for KIRO radio in Seattle and KFBK radio in Sacramento.  He also had a stint at TechTV in San Francisco after starting his professional career at KLIV radio in San Jose.

Chris has had the chance to cover several major stories during his career including the Scott Peterson trial, the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and most recently the deadly gas line explosion in San Bruno.  His coverage of the Peterson trial included repeated appearances on CNN, MSNBC and CourtTV.

Chris spends most of his free time chasing after his young daughter as well as enjoying rare quiet moments with his wife.  He’s also involved in more fantasy sports leagues than any sane person should ever consider and is constanly hoping his beloved Oakland Raiders will one day return to greatness.
