About Chris

I guess you could say I was born a writer. I never really thought about it until I took on the challenge of writing a feature film screenplay. For as long as I can remember, I've been writing some kind of something. As a kid, I wrote short stories for fun. My best friend and I would develop them into our own "movies" and act them out on the school playground for fun. As a teen, I got into writing and drawing comic books with some buddies. After graduating college, I entered the marketing field as a copywriter, while also pursuing my first true love, music. Since then, I've written and recorded music with my rock band and worked at several esteemed advertising agencies. Most recently, I've decided to tackle a whole new endeavor--screenwriting. In a sense, it's come back to where it all began.
