Christopher Grum was born in Dallas and has lived all over the country since then. Growing up, he spent about ten years in Westchester County, just outside of New York City. He also spent a couple of years going to school in Pennsylvania. His high school years were spent in Lufkin, Texas and that’s where he got his first job in radio.
The broadcasting industry would ultimately take him to Boston, Las Vegas, back to Lufkin and finally to Houston. Over a 25-year career, he played every type of music and met (and worked with) some amazing people. Throughout that time, he was an amateur travel agent, constantly helping his friends and family book vacations and plan travel excursions.
He is the owner of PREMIER CUSTOM TRAVEL, a travel agency based in Sugar Land, Texas and specializing in Disney vacations, cruises and customized itineraries for destinations around the world.
Chris lives in Sugar Land, Texas with his cat Buttons.
In his spare time, Chris enjoys going to see live theatre, traveling, sports (especially baseball, hockey and football), spending time with his wonderful friends and going to wine tastings.
Chris is a proud member of the American Society of Travel Agents, a CLIA Elite Cruise Counsellor, a CLIA Luxury Cruise Specialist, a Travel Institute Certified Travel Counselor, an IATA Accredited Agent, a member of NACTA – the National Association of Career Travel Agents, a Certified Sandals Specialist and a SNG Certified Accessible Travel Advocate.
