Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, Chris graduated from Second City Chicago's sketch writing program in 2004 and moved to Los Angeles shortly thereafter. Since arriving in LA, Chris went through the iO West improv program and has trained at the other improv theaters in town, such as UCB and Second City Hollywood. Currently, Chris is performing on an iO West Harold team called "Hot Toddy." He also writes and directs a monthly live radio theater play called the "Majic Radio Theater", which also performs a "Bat Harold", which is long-form improv in the dark, right before the scripted show also at iO West. Chris is also working on a new solo show, putting a podcast together, and will have his blog up very soon.
