Who is Chris Henshaw?

I have lived in the wonderful Northwoods neighborhood in south-east Doraville for the past ten years. I live here with my wife, Kimberly and our 4-year old son, Griffin ‘Fin’ Solo. I’m a small business owner, a travel buff and a movie lover, as well as one of your District 2 council members for the past two years. For fun, I play recreational softball (often on the same team as my wife) and go on short adventures with my family.
