He even competed for the Olympic ski team at one point. He was an artist at heart and enjoyed writing, drawing, woodworking and turning a phrase. He spent a lot of time reading, researching, studying the stars, reverse speech, flat earth and xenomorph.
Chris was a kind and gentle soul with a wonderful sense of humor. His belief system was a bit unconventional and challenged ones thinking, which he enjoyed doing. He was very passionate about these beliefs and backed them up with solid research and common sense.
