He has a wide range of interests and hobbies and is an accomplished golfer as well as a Fly fishing Angler, playing off a 2 handicap, out of Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club as well Johannesburg Country Club.

Chris has recently remarried following the passing of his wife in 2015 and is blessed to have Leandra and Savanna in his life.
