Chris was brought up in West Wickham, just up the road from Croydon and attended a state Grammar School in Orpington. From there he made it to Oxford where he studied Physics. He is married to Elizabeth and they have twins, Nicholas and Kitty, who were born in 2013.

At the age of 24, Chris set up his first business - a distribution business - starting off driving the delivery van himself. Four years later the business had created over 250 jobs and was floated on AIM. Since then Chris has set up and run a number of businesses in the UK and Europe.

Chris has served as a councillor in a London Borough and stood for Parliament in 2010, losing by just 42 votes. He has also set up a charity, Next Big Thing (see which aims to get youngsters from inner city areas interested in setting up businesses.

As the candidate for Croydon South, Chris is interested in the economy and creating jobs, improving state education and improving road and rail transport. Preserving the character of south Croydon is also important to Chris.
