Having begun his career in Hong Kong as a Produc- tion Assistant, the past 18 years have seen Chris work the full gamut of traditional media, new media, ad- vertising and broadcast on a global level. From the launch of Discovery Networks in Europe and South Africa to the New Media Team at Swiss bank UBS Warburg in London.
Moving to the Caribbean in 2001, Chris was appointed Creative Director of Bermuda based Fresh Creations and was instrumental not only in their re-positioning of the award-winning Production Company to full service Advertising Agency but signifi- cantly also undertook a core role in the planning and delivery of Bermuda’s first local cable television channel, Fresh TV.
With a platform now dedicated solely to ‘home-grown’ content, here Chris went on to write, produce and direct and edit countless commercials and programs both live and pre-produced across all genres and formats to the highest standard.
Since re-locating to St. Lucia in the Eastern Caribbean in 2005 Chris has gone on to fill the roles of both Creative Director and Managing Director of two regional Advertis- ing Agencies and Production Companies in the Caribbean and as Director of Regional Operations for a further Cable TV channel. Chris also acts as a Company Director of a global web-based social & business network.
A multi-skilled, multi-tasking Media Professional, Chris is as assertive in business as creatively intuitive and with an intricate knowledge of traditional media and converging technologies.
