Chris is a former Firefighter & Hazardous Materials Technician. He has worked in the Middle East, Europe, East Africa, and Asia. A paragliding fanatic, Chris originally started an outdoor company (he wanted to avoid real work by creating an extreme sports utopia.) His experiences during the Japan Earthquake/Tsunami in March of 2011 caused the birth of Basecamp Expeditions and its commitment to saving lives BEFORE a disaster strikes rather than after one does. Chris is opinionated, outspoken and not as funny as he thinks he is. But… he is very committed to passing his skills on to all those he comes into contact with and showing people how simple, inexpensive, and realistic it can be for EVERYONE to be able to master bad situations. Chris is also manager of the Typo Department… it’s all his fault folks. If you need to complain, Chris is your man.
