Pursuing his love for music at the age of 10, Chris began on the Piano and Clarinet. His love for composition and arranging kindled during his time performing with his high school marching band. His first composition was a piece for a marching band called "Planet Earth" that never saw the light.

During his studies at Berklee, he was under the direction of professor's Rosey Lee, Greg Glancey, Grammy® Award-winning composer Claudio Ragazzi, and Emmy® nominated composer Sheldon Mirowitz.
Christopher is actively working as a freelance composer and sound designer for visual media. Compositions for visual media have been featured in festivals such as SXSW, Palm Springs Short Fest, Massachusetts Animated Film Festival, OnScreen Film and Video Festival, and List-Off Global Network Sessions.
