Chris was introduced to the world of Russian Mathematics prior to his freshman year at Berlin when he enrolled in the Russian Math Camp (now Camp Sunapee). This early exposure to the RSM curriculum showed Chris just how far American math had to go. He remained connected to the RSM community throughout his high school and college careers. He wrote his senior honors thesis on the Russian School of Mathematics at Harvard. After working for three years at the Advanced Math and Science Academy in Marlborough as a math teacher, curriculum consultant, and SAT tutor, Chris joined the teaching staff of RSM where provided instruction in Algebra and Geometry for students in grades 4-9, and worked directly on developing the curriculum and teacher training programs. Chris has since become the principal of RSM-Rocky Hill and RSM-Stamford. Chris also enjoys running competitively, and won the Lowell Bay State Half Marathon in 2011.
