My journalism journey began with an idea for a local art and music zine and the gumption to make it happen with no real plan or existing skill set.

I eventually got my journalism degree at Texas State University-San Marcos, where I worked for two years at the campus radio station, KTSW 89.9 FM. I started at the front desk and then reported for, co-hosted and produced a feature news show.

And I was really good at it! I won several awards for my reporting and producing while in school, including awards from the Houston Press Club, Society of Professional Journalists, College Broadcasters Inc., and the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association.

I have worked in construction, day labor, pizza, managed a local band, and performed live as a DJ. When I am not working I love spending time with my wife and kids, and when possible sports, music, video games and comics/graphic novels.

Chris started at Texas Public Radio in May 2012. He left in September, 2014 to join the San Antonio Express-News digital team.

"The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them" -- Mark Twain.

Dr. John Miller, the author of the America's Most Literate Cities study, which ranked 77 of the nation's largest cities by six groupings of criteria, said that Twain quote perfectly encapsulates his attitude toward literacy.

Speaking at a human rights event, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder directed the Department of Justice to give same-sex couples full and equal recognition to the greatest extent under the law.

Update (11/5): Today is Election Day and voting locations are different from early voting so make sure and pay close attention to your voting precinct. Polls close at 7 p.m.

The Texas Tribune and the University of Texas' Texas Politics Project surveyed 1,200 people from across the state. UT professor Jim Henson, who heads the Texas Politics Project, said much of polling results have to do with name recognition. "It's also the first time in quite a while where we go into the race with the Democrat at least as well known and probably more well known than the Republican is," Henson said.
