Chris started his career at the Experimental Aircraft Association as an editor and videographer. He was responsible for editing TV programming such as "Sport Aviation" aired on Speedvision, and "Ultimate Flights" aired on ESPN.
He then made the move to WISN-TV 12 in Milwaukee to produce graphics for the daily newscast and other local television programming. Chris later worked at WBAY-TV 2 in Green Bay where he was the Lead Editor/Shooter in the Commercial Production Department. For five years, he created more than 1,100 award-winning TV commercials for local companies.
In 2005, Chris branched out on his own, opening Snap 180 Media in Oshkosh. His company provides services from network television broadcast and graphic design to still photography. Snap 180 has developed into a leading business in Northeast Wisconsin.
Chris is also a Technical Sergeant in the Air Force Reserve. He is stationed at March Air Reserve Base and is a Aerial Combat Photographer with the 4th Combat Camera Squadron. When asked what he really does in the Reserves he said, "I take pictures, pictures of really cool things, all over the world, and am very proud to serve my country."
Chris's greatest accomplishment to date, is producing the film "Return to Pearl" (2012). The movie documents the journey of 19 Wisconsin WWII Veterans back to Pearl Harbor, where they survived the tragic attack that occurred on December 7, 1941. Chris was the director of cinematography and also edited the feature length documentary. The movie premiered in front of a sold out crowd of 600 people at the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, WI on December 2, 2012. Chris is honored and grateful to have been a part of such an amazing project and thanks the Old Glory Honor Flight and, most importantly, all of the veterans honored in the film for giving their lives in the name of freedom.
