Candidate Biography

Chris Rockwood was born in Michigan, where his grandfather was a union steward during a 40-year career at Ford Motor Company, and grew up near Pittsburgh. His father was a state university professor, and his mother was appointed by four successive governors to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Citizens Advisory Council.

Chris holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rice University in Houston and has 29 years of experience as an engineer at several high-tech companies, including Apple and Mentor Graphics. He was drawn from California to Wisconsin by the state’s beauty, the warmth of its people, and its progressive political traditions. Chris moved to the Milwaukee area in 2002 and has lived in Wauwatosa with his wife Annette since 2008.
