An Oregon native and resident of Eugene since 1990, Christian chose to live in the Willamette Valley because it is the gateway to many outdoor pursuits. He holds a BS in Finance from the University of Oregon and is a VP Financial Consultant with Charles Schwab. Christian’s love for clean water and native fish was brought about by spending many years on local waters, trying to master the art of fly fishing. Whether running the McKenzie River Trail, skiing the cascades or mountain biking in Oakridge, he is planted right in the middle of everything he loves about being an Oregonian. Christian, his wife, Carrie, and two boys, Maclean and Warren, have explored much of Oregon… but there is always something new to discover.
