Meet the Founder and Chief Bar-Maker
Chris began laying the groundwork for Brain Bar™ in 2017 when he was making healthy, functional snacks in his home kitchen. He was in the process of transforming his life trough a combination of proper nutrition, physical fitness, meditation and volunteering. He discovered that following a more mindful diet had a profound impact on his mood and mental energy. But when he went looking for grab-and-go snack food products that addressed body AND brain health, he couldn't find any. So, using plant-based protein and other innovative agri-food ingredients, Chris began prototyping the very first Brain Bar™.
Chris is passionate about supporting the local agri-food and agriculture industry. Since day one, he has been active with industry organizations and intentional about sourcing high-quality ingredients from trusted suppliers.
Chris has an MBA from Rotman School of Management. He majored in psychology in his undergrad, so brain health has long been one of his key interests. He is a former fitness competitor, avid volunteer, active outdoorsman, and life-long meditator. He can often be found in the Canadian Rockies: skiing, camping or climbing mountains (with a few Brain Bars in hand)
