But I think there's a lot to be said that, if you want to make impact, you actually want to change things, you may need to be willing to give some of those things up, at least for a brief period." e uncertain path may not be right for everyone, but Chris knows what is possible for those with the desire to make a real change. "When you're young and don't have any obligations, go try something crazy," he suggested. "Go do what you actually want to do for a couple years; if you figure out that you hate it, you can always go apply those skills and find someone who will pay you to do menial work. But when you're young is the time to really try to change the world." PAYING IT FORWARD Chris wouldn't have taken such a big chance in his career without the influence of Beta eta Pi. To return the favor, he serves on the House Corporation Board. "When I was treasurer, the alumni board felt like a mystical, all-powerful, all-knowing body," he recalled. With a large age gap between students and alumni, Chris provided a fresh perspective. "I wanted to be on the board so I could help them better understand what the kids are thinking about. It's also about ensuring that, as those guys get older, retire, and don't have time for the board anymore, we still have a healthy, knowledgeable, and well- developed alumni board." Aside from board participation, Chris frequently talks with alumni Brothers and heavily values those connections. "We've all been the best men in each other's weddings, one by one," he said about his graduating class. Chris is recently married, and he also keeps a close relationship with his siblings. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking and is active in his church choir. His wife is entering her second year as a fourth-grade teacher.
