After graduating from technical college in 1996, Chris began his career in the construction industry. Over the next 13 years, he started and managed a plumbing and heating company in northern England. The knowledge he acquired now informs his in-depth writing about kitchen and bathroom equipment, appliances, tools, and all things water-related. More recently, Chris has spent time writing in the warmer climes of Asia and indulging in his passions for windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, and diving. This has allowed him to gather a wealth of useful knowledge in the field of recreational sports.
