About Chris

There's a lot of screenwriters in Los Angeles, but only one of me, and I churn out some of the damnedest stories you've ever laid eyes on.

I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area where I graduated from the Academy of Art University with a bachelors in film production. After three years of producing and directing music videos, I moved to LA and completed a year-long, intensive certificate program at UCLA's Professional Program in Screenwriting. Since graduating, I've remained seated at a desk with a laptop, or in a coffee shop, and I write. I primarily write crime stories and mysteries, sometimes with supernatural elements. If I had to describe the scripts that I write in one word it would be...Thrillers!

I'm a little old-fashioned and I've got a lot of hobbies (collecting and reading pulp paperback novels and comic books). I enjoy the simple things life has to offer such as Thai ice teas, coca-cola in a bottle, and taco trucks.
