Chris is a Georgia native, born in Columbus and raised in the Atlanta metro area since age 3. He attended high school in Lawrenceville and then attained his Bachelor’s degree at University of Georgia. He has had a lifetime love affair with music and food and early on in his career he realized that the special event industry was a perfect place to “harmonize” these two passions together. He has many years of experience in off-premise and conference center sales, operations and service.

Chris brings to the Divine table a light-hearted and quirky sense of humor, an approachable and diplomatic personality and a passion to do what he does to the best of his ability. If he’s not at the office or out about town at either a work event or out with family or friends, you can bet you’ll find him knee-deep in records while scouting for used vinyl at record and music stores in Atlanta and as far beyond as his travels can take him!

Chris gauges his work environment and career performance by his “Grandma Factor”. “Most peoples’ grandmothers hold a special place of tenderness and love in their heart. I look around me and judge my success by whether or not I would be proud to bring my grandmothers to the event I produced or the office or kitchen I work in. It definitely sets the bar high and keeps you humble! I think my grandmothers would be thrilled to see me involved with a wonderful organization like A Divine Event!”
