Having completed seven years of military service as an electronics/communication technician Chris left the Air Force and worked for Boeing Australia as a defense contractor in the Australian Defense Force Network Design Department. During this time his time in the military and serving as a defense contractor Chris was exposed to a variety of technology both in support and engineering roles.
