All Chris planned on doing was filming his two toddlers in 1986 when he picked up a video camera for the first time. But he immediately became addicted to telling powerful stories with it. Chris quit his job as a sales & marketing rep. in 1990 and without even a film or video class under his belt became a full-time independent filmmaker and video producer.
Today Chris writes, produces, directs, interviews, edits and even hosts many of the films (totaling 2000) that he’s crafted for companies and social events. His recent company clients include Google, OfficeMax, eBay, Deloitte, Kaiser, Four Seasons Hotel, KGO 810 Radio San Francisco, Zumba, Silver Creek Valley Country Club, The American Cancer Society and many more. Chris’s short films have generated more than four million internet views and the trailer for his upcoming film, “Touched By Hannah”, recently won an award at the IndieFest Global film competition. www.touchedbyhannah.com

Chris’ favorite thing to do outside work is spend quality time with his wife Betsy and daughter Hannah. He’s also addicted to performing improv comedy, making folks laugh wherever he goes, running on the elliptical, drinking Philz coffee and of course his film making ventures.
