Chris is a former assistant professor with a passion for the ocean and a deep desire to convey its charm to others. As a professor, he was unable to hold the attention of his students, and when he saw the students gathering around the flyer for idol auditions, he thought that as an idol he may be able to show his students the charm of the ocean. He takes any opportunity possible to talk about the ocean, and often compares people and situations to sea animals, for example saying that he'd like to be able to sing like a whale.
