“ Chris has worked for me many times on my documentary and dramatic film projects. Most recently he sound edited my documentary “ Reclaiming Rights “ and scored and sound designed my Bravo short “ Wanting the Wine “. His skills recording dialogue, composing music, sound designing and sound editing are exceptional and I have been consistently impressed with the results. Chris’s professional attitude, attention to detail and deadline and his amicable personality make him a valuable addition to any film project. I highly recommend him because he is a joy to work with."

” Chris has unique and “out there” ideas that cross genres from Sci-Fi to Thriller. The story he has worked on diligently through 3 drafts has taken the script into other dimensions and realms not typically explored. He has the potential for a blockbuster in the psychological/psychic thriller he is writing.”

THIS IS ME
“ Beyond our expectations! “ is a response Chris hears over and over again! He hears it from clients just after he delivers the music, script or film he created - for their project. And when he hears those words, he knows they will collaborate again. Their instinct to trust one another was heartfelt.
Chris doesn’t work on every project that comes his way. Every creative collaboration is like any relationship. Can he communicate with this person? Do they hear him and do they listen? Is their project of interest to him and is he excited enough to support their creative vision? Is there opportunity to take risks to push the project to new creative heights?
Chris ‘main areas of focus are original music creation, scriptwriting and film and video production. His unique style, passion, talent and experience have set him far apart from the rest. A shining beacon of original creativity in the vast fog laden ocean of mediocrity.
Chris has envisioned and written 18 scripts for film, television and radio and to date has 3 production credits 1 for television ( Mustard Pancakes Productions ) and 2 for CBC Radio ( ZOE and Sanctuary ).
He is also an instructor and mentor at Troubadour Mentoring.
