Chris was swept up in the story telling and relationships in the first show he saw at TimeLine, TO MASTER THE ART:

Seeing a show at TimeLine is such an intimate experience. I left the production buzzing. I’d followed TimeLine for years and the second I finally saw their work, I was hooked.

Chris is now an Associate Artist at TimeLine, where he has appeared in SPILL, A RAISIN IN THE SUN and the Chicago premiere of CHIMERICA.

The ability to work with a super talented, giving, and supportive group of artists, who care about history and how it reflects the issues of today, is inspiring.

Other recent stage credits include BENT (The Other Theatre Company) and THIS IS MODERN ART (Steppenwolf). He has also worked on stage with Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Next Theatre, Oak Park Festival Theatre, Redtwist Theatre, and The Neo-Futurists. Regional credits include several productions with Saratoga Shakespeare Company. Chris also works as a theatrical violence designer, and has collaborated on productions with Northlight, Theater Wit, The Arc Theatre, American Blues Theatre, Redtwist and Chicago Dramatists. Television credits include CHICAGO FIRE (NBC) and MIND GAMES (ABC).

Chris hails from Stamford, N.Y., a town in the mountains with two stop lights. There were 42 kids in his high school graduating class, most of whom he had gone to school with since kindergarten. He grew up hunting with his dad and working in the garden and fishing with his grandfather. He was surrounded by an older generation that had grown up in a very different world and had been tested in ways that he could only imagine.  They ignited in him an interest in history, making him a voracious reader and film fan of anything that had to do with history.

Chris has a BA degree in Theatre from The University at Albany and an MFA degree in Acting from The Theatre School at DePaul. Every day he is amazed that he lives in one of the most creative cities in the U.S. and gets to work with the people he does, on the projects he does.
