About Me

Artist, Thinker, Creative Doer


Family Man & Digital Marketer

My name is Chris Hanna and I was born in Rochester, NY. I moved to Atlanta for ten years after graduating from college and then proceeded to move back to Rochester to settle down and start a family. I am married and have two sons; Ryan and Owen.

My beautiful wife, Caryn, is from Martin, TN and we are relocating to Nashville, TN. I will never stop being a Buffalo Bills fan though.

I am well rounded, have a wide variety of interests and enjoy keeping active. I am ready to take on a position for a company that I find both challenging and rewarding. I want to love work again.
