Chris has a wide range of artistic expertise ranging from stand-up comedy, to experimental film, to more serious documentary work. His thesis project for his M.A. at NEIU, "Tell Me About My Mother," (about his mother's struggles with extreme mental illness) won a few awards but, most importantly, has screened in front of classrooms and conventions of occupational therapists. His absurd comedic plays have been produced all around Chicago, including at Second City's DeMaat Theatre. His book, "Twenty Years Without a Weekend" recounts his unconventional path to becoming an expert in public speaking, by giving tours of the city of Chicago to tourists for over 20 years. Chris also has various television production experience, having worked with Big Shoulders Digital Video and other companies. Chris could go on. Chris likes writing about himself in the third person.
