Originally from West Virginia, Christian started rowing in 1996 at the Ohio Valley Rowing Club, where he rowed 4’s and 8’s and competed in the Midwest. He took that experience to college and started the West Virginia University of Parkersburg Rowing Club. 

Christian started coaching at Parkersburg High School as assistant then became Head Women’s coach and also coached the Marietta High School Men’s Crew. After relocating to Connecticut, he started coaching in the junior program at the Greenwich Rowing Club. Christian’s greatest satisfaction as a coach has been to share in the joy of rowing with his crews and their pride in improving their performance in competitive regattas.

He joined WinTech Racing in 2005 and is responsible for customer service and the company’s Online Store, in addition to assisting with warehouse operations. Customers calling WinTech can rely on his knowledge of the sport and rowing equipment to get the right answers to their questions.
