History

Christopher got his first cube in Mid-August 2015, and finished learning how to solve it in Mid-August 2016. He learned first layer on his own, second layer from a friend, and third layer from RedKB's tutorial on YouTube [1]. He went to his first competition in April 2017, Don't Mess With Texas 2017 and even though he didn't compete, he still had a lot of fun. He competed for the first time later that year at Longhorn Cube Day 2017 and met one of his closest friends, Cameron Burke, who he still talks to today. Since then, Christopher has competed in every event except for 5x5 Blindfolded.On March 9, 2019, he set the OH Southern Record Single with an 8.74 [2]. On June 1, he got a 38.26 [3] 3x3 with feet single, which was 2nd in Texas. On July 28, he got a 5.97 [4] 3x3 single, currently putting him 7th in Texas.

Christopher also has a YouTube channel [5], a Twitch channel [6], and a Discord server [7].
