Meet Chris!

Vibe Secondary Teacher Chris riding through EuropeOne of our veteran Vibers is Chris a.k.a. Cramer who is one of the legendary Team Leaders on our Secondary team and an all-round great guy! Chris is originally from Sydney, Australia but these days its rare to see him venture beyond SW6 (Fulham) here in London. Chris arrived in London back in September 2013 and in his time here he has frequented The Slug at least 1,673 times and unfortunately missed seeing his beloved Cronulla Sharks win their first ever NRL Premiership last year back in Sydney. If you need advice on where to go in Fulham, the best choice of food at Maltby Street Markets or who will win the upcoming WWE match, then hit Cramer up on his ever-growing Facebook account.

Tell us about your story with Vibe

I started teaching at a PRU through Vibe when I first moved to London in 2013. I then moved into the Vibe office in May 2014 as part of the Secondary Team where I still am today.
