After a successful collegiate run at Ole Miss, Chris spent ten years in the NFL as an offensive lineman for the Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, and Tennessee Titans.
But, as all true athletes know, the adventure will eventually come to an end.
As Chris approached the final days of his NFL career, he noticed the high percentage of athletes, who were once at the top of their game, end up financially unstable with failed marriages. This left a lasting impact, which ultimately led Chris down the path of developing companies to address some of those issues.
Chris is now a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Blu Chip Analytics, bridging the gap between Psychology and Augmented Intelligence, fan engagement, and trans-active consumer data technologies. Because of Chris's background and understanding of how tough transitions are, he is uniquely qualified to help organizations understand their people better to help them grow in the right areas.
Chris enjoys an active life with his wife and three children in Brentwood, TN.
