Standing at just less than 6 feet tall, Chris Burkmenn demonstrates the ideals of the 20-something generation. Optimism glints in his eyes as he thinks about the future of the Chris Burkmenn Experience, or The CBEX. Burkmenn calls St. Louis home – the place where he achieved his Accelerated Computer Specialist graduate degree in just 10 months from College in 2006. Chris feels that music connects to him at a deep level. “I can feel empowered, sad, happy, mad and even love,” he said. That helps explain his passion for musical talent that is a basis for his webisodes titled The CBEX.
Burkmenn hopes that The CBEX will one day reach network attention, because “I feel that there is just such a place for it.” Chris Burkmenn is turning his dream into a reality. He distinctly remembers being young and listening to Hall & Oats in his dad’s “beat up, old truck” and singing with him at the “top of our lungs.” Not to mention, he grew up playing Carson Daly, a former host of the TV show “TRL” in the mirror.
