A Texas native, graduate of Tulane University, and published author, Chris is a longtime contributing writer whose book reviews, getaway articles, and popular “Misadventures” columns will be immediately recognizable to CR’s regular readers. In the course of his quixotic quest to get to grips with Louisiana’s unique culture, Chris has embraced alpacas, eaten insects, been shot at during Civil War re-enactments, de-mystified gravitational waves, and considered the complexities of the system of pumps that keeps the water out of New Orleans (… mostly). In his role as Arts & Entertainment Editor, Chris oversees Country Roads’ coverage of events, festivals, and the arts, curate the content for the Country Roads This Week and Overnight e-newsletters, and continue his misadventures.
