Chris has always been an average person in his life. He was average in school, he wasn’t a crazy kid who was going out all the time and he was also average in sports. However, this changed when he was 16 years old and his sister asked him what he wanted to do in life and he said he wasn’t sure. They argued for a whole week until he told her he always had a dream of becoming an actor. His sister Jane then replied ”Good let’s work on that! But first, we would need to move to LA!”, and that’s how their journey started. Once he graduated from high school, all his friends, family and the entire school knew he was going to move to LA with his sister in order to pursue his dreams. Not a single person believed in him. He lost a lot of his close friends, he broke up with his girlfriend at the time and she even told him that he would never make it in LA as an actor and model. Even his professors in school were making fun of him and his parents were against them leaving since the parents were afraid they would struggle by themselves in a foreign country.

Fast forward to 2015, he graduated from high school and moved with his sister to LA. The big advantage he had is that he had dual citizenship – the American and Luxembourgish nationality. Once they got to LA, he could immediately start working and that’s how he got his first job in LA as a model for Abercrombie and Fitch. When he worked at Abercrombie, he realized how big the competition in LA was and that everyone is in shape and takes care of their physique. That’s when he started to get more into fitness and workout daily. After 6 months, he realized just being a model wasn’t enough for him and his sister suggested he should start to be more active on social media. She told him, he would get more opportunities if he creates good content and have a solid fan base. He started a YouTube vlog channel where he vlogged his daily life going to the gym, auditions, etc. Only after a month of vlogging, he had multiple agencies hitting him up to sign with them and that’s how he started to get into acting and quit his job at Abercrombie after that, only focusing on his social media, acting and modeling from time to time.
