Born and raised in South Florida, Christopher launched his lifelong inquiry into learning how things work in local bands, and theme parks, and as a merchandiser, web & graphic designer, touring musician, nightlife DJ, and performer. He studied Recording Engineering at Full Sail University, and continues to enjoy mentoring other musicians and artists who are learning to create the most with minimal resources, often with the help of modern web-based technology.
Now grounded near the Rocky Mountains since 2018, Christopher and his family continue to create ways to nurture and play with the community. Recognizing that all people deserve to be seen and heard and able to gather right where they are, Christopher launched 303 Karaoke – a mobile karaoke service backed by a professional audio engineer and production equipment. In honor of his inner child’s dream to be a dinosaur, he also launched Denver Dinosaurs, featuring Onyx the Velociraptor – an immersive prehistoric experience for this modern-day moment.
