In addition to his aforementioned accomplishments, Chris is also a much heralded concert photographer. Despite his success in this area, his passion has always been behind the camera.
The thing about Chris is best described by those who know him best. They always comment about his wicked sense of humor. In the end, it makes sense that his films and humor go hand-in-hand.
More often than not, you don’t have to look far to take in the humor. Like Stan Lee, Chris can always be spotted in his films or music videos making a cameo appearance.
