Chris was on track to be an electrical engineer before deciding it wasn’t for him. Still interested in complex machinery, he applied for his current role on a whim. Chris loves the technical aspects of his job and is taking advantage of the Aquarium’s tuition reimbursement program by pursuing a graduate degree in mechanical engineering.
Chris starts his day at 7:30 AM—the Life Support Team’s early shift. Upon arriving, he walks through the pump room and checks for anomalies in the water filtration system. Chris often works with Aquarium curators after lunch, providing assistance with the equipment and water system needs of the exhibits.
