Chris was born and raised on a farm in rural Kansas. His mother is an artist from New York while his father is a cowboy from Kansas. He lived in Rhode Island for a number of years, studying photography at Rhode Island School of Design. Soon after, Chris worked at Wax Poetics magazine and Fania Records. In 2010, he moved to New York and created his own record label, Paxico. Exploring modern folklore and probing “the details within simplicity” are the focal points of his art. He also creates pixel art and designs software.
