Hello all, I am Chris, and although I am not a native of Birmingham, I have since adopted it as my hometown. Born in Knoxville, TN, I called Birmingham, or to be more specific Grayson Valley home from 1994-2000, with the exception of a nine month gap in 1997 when I lived in suburban Chicago. I graduated from Hewitt-Trussville High School in 1999 and attended UAB for a single year before transferring to the University of Alabama. Being where I both finished high school and where I met my wife, I proudly tell others I call the 'ham home. Currently living in Roanoke, Virginia, I cannot wait to make my permanent return to the Magic City!
