From a young age, Chris has been fascinated with storytelling in all of its diverse forms. His early interest in music translated into a position as the Principal Percussionist in the Florida Youth Orchestra, which landed him a gig playing for the president at the 400th Anniversary of America in Jamestown, VA, as well as a performance at the famed Carnegie Hall. He’s also had a letter written to Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451, published in the Library of Congress, and has won numerous other accolades for his creative talents, including a $6,000 scholarship from Memorial Hospital.
As a writer and filmmaker, Chris’s influences range from H.P. Lovecraft to Japanese animation. He aspires to be a content creator for a modern & global audience. Creatively, he draws from the likes of Lars von Trier, Guillermo del Toro, John Carpenter, and Kentaro Miura. His most recent project is the award-winning student film Bad Magic, for which he worked as the Unit Production Manager. He is currently working on 2 feature length screenplays and a YA techno-thriller novel, Dark Web, which is slated to come out by the end of 2017.
