SHILLINGTON

It took Chris 10 years of bartending gigs and sitting on a (near useless) BA before packing up his car and driving cross country to NYC for a course at Shillington in 2018. He’s back now in California, enjoying his time with his pups and nabbing a position as an apparel designer in San Francisco with his new found design knowledge. Chris is a publisher of zines, lover of all things sci-fi, and is really bad at talking about himself.
