After award-winning stage work as a writer, director, actor, and producer in the nineties, Chris moved to Los Angeles to pursue film and TV work. He has since written more than two dozen feature film and television screenplays and has been invited to participate in screenwriting events for Cinema Seattle and Angel Citi Film Festival. His award-winning short films, which span both the narrative and documentary genres, have played at festivals all over the country, including New York and Los Angeles, and on cable television in 166 countries.
Chris has worked as a writer, director, actor, camera operator, editor and producer on various film and television projects in Los Angeles involving networks such as ESPN, HGTV, Lifetime, Wealth TV, and Fox Sports Net as well as concert DVD’s for artists such as Jessica Simpson, Eminem’s group D12, and Macy Gray. He served as a principle at Three Blind Artists Entertainment Group where he arranged world-wide DVD distribution for a micro-budgeted feature-film, then made the transition to managing member of StoryCrafters, LLC. before getting married and leaving Los Angeles for the suburbs of Seattle.
During his six-year hiatus, he served as Managing Member of Kitchen Sink Holdings and wrote three novels that were published by Electric Quill Press. He and his wife recently relocated to Prescott, Arizona where they intend to launch their own multi-media company. In the meantime, Chris has resumed his writing career for both books and the film and television industry.
Chris is also a big sports fan and, after having lived in all three West Coast states before landing in Arizona, his allegiances remain in Seattle with the Super Bowl XLVIII Champion Seahawks, Huskies and Mariners. He is also waiting impatiently for the return of the Super Sonics.
