Chris became a known entity in the skateboard world around about the year 2000 with a Tensor truck ad. He did a noseslide to nollie heelflip out on a handrail. This caught the attention of Rodney Mullen and he was sponsored by World Industries. Chris was briefly was on enjoi and then switched to Zero, where he's been ever since. He won Thrasher's SOTY award in 2005 and 2009 by destroying pretty much everything he skates by doing technical tricks bigger and better than a lot of people. In 2011, he left longtime footwear sponsor Fallen to ride for DC Shoes. At the time, he also became a partner with Jamie Thomas in ownership of Zero. Chris does well in those contests you see on TV, too.
