A background in classical piano taught Chris how to listen to the things around him and make sense of the themes. That sense of observing and assimilating is how he approaches his films. As a director and editor, he gets real performances – often from non-actors – and chooses shots to illuminate the rhythm of their lives, making their stories bolder and more playful. Among his accomplishments: 3 x Vimeo Staff Picks, an AICP nomination, film festival awards, a YouTube “top 10 Made-for-the Web shows” credit, and putting up with the NYC subway. He is preparing his debut feature film. He adores chocolate covered almonds.
