Chris completed his studies at Newcastle University in in 2016, following previously completing an exercise and sports science degree in America. Whilst at university Chris worked as a personal trainer focusing on strength and condition and rehabilitation where he worked with a number of athletes that have gone on to represent their state and Australia, as well as playing professionally overseas.

In his last year of university he undertook a yearlong placement with the Newcastle Knights 1st grade squad, he has also worked as a sports trainer for a number of local soccer and AFL teams. He has a keen interest in sports which goes back to his own achievements earning a sporting scholarship to play baseball in the USA at college whilst studying his first degree.
