Chris joined the Chicago Young Republicans in 2015 and is passionate about mobilizing young Republicans in the state to do all we can to take the Illinois House Speaker’s gavel away from Mike Madigan who has been Speaker for longer than many of our Young Republican members have been alive (33 years as of 2017). Chris is excited about working with the CYR Executive Board to do our part to bring the Illinois House back to GOP control for the first time since 1996.

Outside of politics and work, Chris is an officer in the US Navy Reserves, runs an equity investment fund that he co-founded with a classmate at the University of Chicago and sits on the Board of Managers for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago Dr Martin Luther King, Jr club.
