Chris Finn graduated with a B.A. in English from Edinboro University in 1982, continued on for post-graduate work, and earned multiple IT certifications in subsequent years. He began his career at MBS in 1985 as an English Instructor. During his first fifteen years (in addition to his teaching responsibilities), Chris coached golf and volleyball, advised the school yearbook and newspaper, established and advised Contemporary Music Workshop, and ran the first Computer Writing Center in the “old” Grant Hall Basement.
In 2000, Chris traded his English “teaching cap” for a pocket protector and joined the Technology Department, where he supported the MBS Technology Infrastructure and helped with faculty and student training and IT support.
After five years in IT and Audio-Visual support at the school, he re-entered the classroom, this time to teach courses including Digital Graphic Design, Digital Video Storytelling, and Music Production. These classes contributed in part to the earliest iterations of what now is called the Design Arts & Sciences Program, of which Chris currently serves as Department Chair.
Chris appreciates the many opportunities to change, grow, and learn at MBS, and he is deeply grateful for the many friendships he has found here, too. Outside of school, he is an active professional musician, performing on guitar and vocals throughout local Morris County venues.
