Following interning for the congressman, Chris moved to New York City where he worked for PiMS, a company that distributes marketing materials for PR and advertising firms. He was then transferred in 1994 to work for their Los Angeles office for six years. In 2001, he found his passion in the publishing business while working for titles such as “Angeleno” and “Front Desk.” Through his dedication and hard work, Chris was promoted to take over for Riviera Orange County in 2008 and was given the opportunity to publish its sister magazine, Riviera San Diego. 

Chris currently is the Group Publisher for 8 Brands in Southern California: “Angeleno”, “Los Angeles Confidential”, “Riviera Orange County”, Modern Luxury San Diego”, “Interiors California”, “Weddings California”, “Modern Luxury Beverly Hills”, and “Modern Luxury Palm Springs”.
