A true inventor at heart, Chris built his first radio transmitter when he was 8 years old and has been inventing ever since. At age 16 he designed a new radio-controlled switch system that won first place in a state-wide electronics competition. This led directly to his first job as an engineer at WATH/WXTQ Radio. He earned his First Class Commercial FCC License and was promoted to Chief Engineer at age 18. He put himself through college working as an engineer at WNCI Radio where he developed new audio processing and synchronous timing systems. For his senior project, Chris designed a new digitally-tunable Spectrum Analyzer for use in the communications lab classes. He holds a BSEE from the Ohio State University.
