A Central Coast, California native, Chris was named by Forbes as one of the world’s top 10 social influencers in 2017, boasting more than 3.2 million Instagram followers. He typically travels thousands of miles per year. While he lives a life most only dream about, his true happiness is at home with his wife Breanne and their two sons, Forrest and Jeremiah. He is often gone for more than 200 days in a year, so family time is precious to him and is vital to his ability to stay grounded and focus on the most important aspects of his life.
“My existence is a constant thrill ride,” he says. “I am privileged to be paid to visit stunning environments that most people never get to see. That being said, I most value the little adventures I get to experience with my sons. I’ll take them to a beach or a trail I’ve been to dozens of times but the way they interact with the environment and grow from the experience gives me an entirely new perspective. It definitely brings me into the moment.”
