Director of Digital
Chris is an entrepreneur and business owner from St. Louis, MO, who currently leads a remote team at Lift, a user experience design company. Best known for their Emmy® Award-nominated second screen apps for television, Lift also designs and develops websites and other apps, all on top of the popular WordPress CMS. Additionally, they offer a church website platform called Faithmade, which enables churches to create free websites quickly and easily.
Chris attended Bible college for two years, married his high school sweetheart and was diagnosed with testicular cancer all before the age of 21. After undergoing surgery and chemotherapy, he was declared cancer-free and subsequently began his career as the webmaster at Saint Louis Christian College. Chris has since worked with many big brands over the years, including Network Solutions, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, AMC Networks, Frito-Lay, United Business Media, eBay, and others.
Chris and his wife, Megan, moved to McKinney four years ago to join Gateway Church (and also escape the cold winters) and haven't looked back. A husband, father of three (Madison, JJ, and Elise), and huge St. Louis Cardinals fan, Chris enjoys spending time with family, listening to music, watching movies and brewing homemade pour-over or French press coffee.
