Chris graduated from the University of Alberta’s juris doctor program in 2019. He then enjoyed a composite article in Edmonton and was admitted to the bar in August of 2020. Prior to his legal career Chris pursued an education in music at Grant MacEwan University. There he learned to play drum kit and composed music for both small ensembles as well as full-scale orchestras.
The change in career from music to the legal profession was spurred on by Chris’s diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Aware that a career in music was no longer available to him, Chris searched for other career options and was fortunate to be admitted to the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Law. The rights of the disadvantaged have since become a central aspect of Chris’s life. Be it in regards to the rights of people of colour, individuals of varying sexual and gender identities, those with disabilities or members of religious minorities, Chris believes in a society where all people and all creeds can live together in peace and equality.
Chris has taken leadership roles in multiple capacities. He has lead efforts to improve accessibility at the University of Alberta, efforts to improve Edmonton’s paratransit services and also serves on the Law Society of Alberta’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee.
Human rights are not Chris’s only field of interest. Chris also looks forward to helping you with your marital and divorce issues, be it child support, spousal support, custody or a division of property. Chris especially enjoys the complexities that can arise from interprovincial marriages. If you find yourself in the throws of separating from someone from another province, Chris looks forward to helping you.
Originally from Red Deer, Chris has lived in Central Alberta for most of his life. When he isn’t working, he enjoys playing chess, listening to music and reading.
