Chris has been part of the local indie, gritty, DIY performance scene in DC for 15+ years. He was co-founder of the notorious pervpunk theatre company Cherry Red Productions. He has served as festival director for the ROSEBUD Film and Video Festival. He is founder of DC’s (and perhaps the world’s) only serialized theatre festival which also raises money and awareness for local nonprofits, Hope Operas. He is also a playwright having written shows for all five years of Hope Operas and for the Mashup Festival. He is currently working on a web series about a gender-fluid, interdimensional messiah/burlesque junkie called Horse Head.
