Chris previously served at Nepean Christian School for 12 years as teacher and coordinator (various roles).

While teaching science, mathematics, and design in Christian schools, Chris grew to love helping children to see the world through a gospel lens and to disciple in discernment of the captivating false stories of our culture. Chris is the author of the shortlisted* book The Frog and the Fish: Reflections on Work, Technology, Sex, Stuff, Truth, and Happiness. His main research focus, in more recent years, has been technology education. Chris has a particular interest in technology and education and how the biblical worldview, centred in Christ, should shape how we approach technology as Christian educators.

Chris and his wife, Coco, live in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. They have two children and a growing collection of ukuleles.
