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.

How Affordable is Housing in San Antonio?

Lead in text: 
Another study looking at how income compares to housing prices in the 25 largest cities in the United States shows how even in San Antonio, which is in the bottom five lowest income cities, the lower income levels mean many families can't afford median priced homes. The Interest.com study shows that San Antonio's median income falls below the income required to purchase a median priced home, but only slightly. This .55 percent difference earns San Antonio a C- in the Income.com study. ------------------- Just to compare, Detroit is also in the bottom five cities with the lowest income and finds itself in a much better position because of how the median income compares to the price of a median priced home. The percent that Detroit's median income exceeds the income required for a median priced home is 45 percent.
A median-income household can only afford a median-priced home in 14 of the nation's 25 largest metropolitan areas Atlanta, Detroit and Minneapolis-St. Paul are the most affordable cities, according to Interest.com's first Home Affordability Study. San Diego, New York and San Francisco are the least affordable.
