About

Christopher is a graduate of Villanova and Colgate Universities, where he graduated summa cum laude and magna cum laude, respectively. A former forensic analyst in an FBI-sponsored program, he has used his degree in Analytical Chemistry in several forensic and quality assurance laboratories, most recently serving as a Quality Assurance Chemist at the Lion Brewery in his hometown of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Christopher is passionate about Chemistry and loves to work to change students’ perceptions of it as a droll subject best avoided to what he sees as a familiarity with the building blocks that make up the computer you’re reading from, the chair you sit on, and you! Keenly interested in not being a one-track kind of person, he also loves tutoring his adopted second language, Spanish, and is happy to speak and teach it any opportunity (with a notable Argentine accent).
