Since 1997 Chris has also been instructing high performance and advanced driving schools.  As an in-car and lead classroom instructor he has taught hundreds of teens and adults life-saving driving skills.  It is here that he picked up his passion for instructing the Driving Artstm.

In 2004 Chris began his law enforcement career where he continues today.  After working many senseless and often heart breaking crashes with teens, he has seen first hand the effects of poor driving skill and judgment. It is this experience that drove him to found Blacktop Bootcamp.
