Chris worked for 30 year in the aerospace industry and retired in 1996 as Vice President at COMSAT Laboratories in Washington, DC where he helped bring satellite communications into the commercial world.
In 2000, at age 62, Chris was introduced to the Pilates method. After a few month of hard work, beneficial changes in body and mind became obvious and exercising on the mat and equipment eventually became great fun. Encouraged to seek a teacher certification, Chris started the teacher training program at The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO in 2003 studying with Amy Alpers and Rachel Segal, Deb Kolway and Kim Haroche. Chris completed the Advanced Teacher Training Program in 2004, the Masterâ€™s Program in 2007 and became a Host Advisor in 2013.
Chris has been a member of the Pilates Method Alliance since 2005 and is PMA Certified Pilates Teacher since 2005.
Since starting to teach in 2003, Chris continued studying the method and had the privilege to study with Mary Bowen and other well known teachers such as Wendy LeBlanc Arbuckle, Deborah Lessen, Jean Sullivan, Michele Larson, Cara Reeser, Siri Galliano and Madelaine Black. He also returned for many workshops to The Pilates Center in Boulder.
