GET TO KNOW ME

Chris was born and raised in New York City, where he started in the events industry as a disc jockey at the age of 13. During his high school, undergraduate, and MBA years in Florida, DJing evolved into nightclub promotions, event production, and experiential marketing. Chris first joined Hello! in Orlando from 2008 through 2012. He spent a large portion of this time in-house at a major convention resort, giving him a deep understanding of how to create and maintain a mutually beneficial hotel/DMC relationship that serves the meeting client. Starting mid-2012, Chris pursued an opportunity where he built an event supplier product line, client base, and brand which was eventually acquired in 2018. Chris is ecstatic to be back home at Hello!, beginning in our Las Vegas office in a senior sales role and later moving to the general manager of Hello! Florida (South). When he’s not conquering the events world, Chris enjoys spending quality time playing, eating, and laughing with his wife Terri, his three kids Ava, Samantha, and little Chris, and his big Italian and Vietnamese families.
