Coach Chris was born and raised on the east side of Indianapolis. As a freshman in high school he fell in love with acrobatics at Indiana Academy, where he attended parochial boarding school. After four years, his strong interest and hard work earned him an athletic scholarship to attend Washington Adventist University. As a base on a fifty member acro squad, The Acro Airs, Chris toured the country performing at schools, public events, and NBA half time shows. He has coached tumbling for competitive gymnastics and all-star cheerleading since 2001 and is honored to be the owner and head coach of AcroIndy.
