Chris has committed himself to making a difference in the lives of students since he was a sophomore in college. While studying at the University of California, Riverside, he started Fix UC, a group dedicated to developing new ways to solve the student debt crisis. After finding success at the national level, he expanded his public policy work and founded the nonprofit Foundation for Innovation and Creative Solutions in 2014. When Chris is not helping high school students achieve their college dreams at MeriEducation, he is working with governments, colleges, and universities to keep students out of debt. Somehow, he also finds time in between to sing and play guitar in a punk rock band.
