- Chris is a multi-award-winning chess champion. Like “The Queen’s Gambit,” minus the orphanage and induced hallucinations, he competed in (and won) several tournaments as a kid.
- Speaking of winning, Chris won a CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) award in college for his social media series, Minute Monday.
- Chris frowns a lot. But his frowns don’t mean he’s feeling down: He’s just in deep thought.
