Chris has close to two decades in the real estate and non-QM space. When asked what he loves most about our company, he says, “We do things that no other lender can do.

He achieved Rookie of the Year his first year with Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions as well. He has a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the Citadel, which speaks to his drive to excel.
His hobbies include boating, wakeboarding, 7 on 7 football where his team holds eight Charleston City Championships and spending time with his daughter. He has played football since the third grade including high school, college, and semi-pro as the first round draft pick for the Charleston FireCats. He likes to win!

When he is not dominating on the football field he can be found on his boat the “Calm Cs” named after family members Chip, Cindy, Chris, Caroline, Casey and Charlotte (coincidentally named). He also enjoys skydiving even though he says he is terrified of heights.
