Chris was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on April 3, 2004, at the age of 19, while living in the student dorms as a freshman in college. At the time of diagnosis, Chris was playing college football and was sent to the ER with a blood sugar of 858 mg/dL.
For the past 10 years, Chris has been actively working with the diabetes community, both online and off, helping others with diabetes by answering their questions and concerns about the disease. In 2007, Chris started his diabetes blog, The Life of a Diabetic, as a way to express his feelings about diabetes and to show others that a life with diabetes is the same as anyone else’s, just with added daily management.
Chris now lives in Florida with his wife Amanda, and they are expecting their first child in the spring of 2015. Chris is also President and CEO of a digital marketing agency he started in 2009.
