Fan Guest

PLEASE NOTE: The following bio was written by Chris himself, so it may well be filled with exaggeration, self-importance, and outright bulls#!t. You have been warned. Chris has volunteered, paneled, guested, staffed, and been committee at literally dozens of cons along the east coast for 30+ years. He’s a nationally certified sign language interpreter. A Navy veteran, he has worked as a pre-K through university teacher, and operated his own business logistics services company. As a lower-leg amputee and end-stage kidney disease patient, Chris actively promotes disability rights and accessibility, within the convention community and elsewhere. In addition to disability awareness and empowerment, public speaking, writing, and performance of "I Wish I Could Stand Up Comedy", he’s also served as Programming Co-Director, Fandom & Geek Life Programming Director, Accessibility Director, Panelist, and creator of Accessibility Services. In Chris’ honor, ConCarolinas has created The Shrewsbury Award, given in recognition of his positive outlook and devotion to ConCarolinas. In addition to his activities as a Guest and panelist, Chris also serves as ConCarolinas’ Accessibility Coordinator, helping to provide equal and fair access to individuals with disabilities. Chris’ sense of humor and love of all things geek make him a welcome addition to our convention.
