Graduating Summa Cum Laude from St. Mary’s College HS, Chris went on to San Francisco State to pursue AV Production, and obtained a BA in Radio & TV Production. While completing his undergraduate degree, Chris started his own multimedia company called Movements in Media. Shortly after, Chris co-produced his first music video with his friend, Ryan Coogler. This shifted his focus to music video production, because it fused his passion of music and video production. After graduating from SF State, and while still running Movements in Media, he also acted as the Technical Director, and Lighting Designer, at El Cerrito High School Performing Arts Theater. While cranking out music videos for local musicians, Chris began to acquire clients in Southern California, and each project began to looks and feel more like a film. In an effort to learn more about film, and movie production, Chris applied to graduate school for cinema at USC, and was accepted.
Chris spent three years dedicating his education to Film and TV production, focusing his efforts on production sound, film picture editing, sound editing and post production sound mixing. Chris graduated, Cum Laude, with his MFA from USC in the spring of 2016, and began working independently on both fiction and non-fiction films.
