Originally from Indiana, Chris attended Ball State University. During college he spent five months abroad in Scharbeutz, Germany working for a Restaurant as a prep cook, server & bartender. After returning home Chris worked for the landmark restaurant in Columbus Ohio, The Waterworks on Front Street working in all capacities of the restaurant. In 1987 Chris was hired by the Hyatt Regency and worked as Food & Beverage Manager in Chicago, St. Louis and Columbus. In 1995 Chris joined us at Crab & Fin and has been with us over 20 years.
Back in 2005, thanks to our friends at the Crab Broker, Chris traveled to Dutch Harbor Alaska to meet the boat Captains and learn how Alaskan King Crab is harvested and processed and why the crab that we source is second to none. While in Alaska Chris was able to meet several of the Captains from the Deadliest Catch and tour their ships.
