During his sophomore year of college, Chris, who grew up improvising comedy routines with his younger brother Mike, teamed up with a buddy to enter Florida State's Funniest Man Competition. Performing a comedy skit they wrote, the two won first prize- $500 and a trip to New York City to open at the Improv. They ended up becoming a regular act at Florida State, performing at parties and at comedy clubs around town.
Chris and his friend have their own improv group in L.A. that perform under the name "The Stick Men".
Chris' youngest brother Steve wrote the screenplay for the critically acclaimed movie Wrestling Ernest Hemingway.

Chris has had formal training in acting with the esteemed Piven Theater Workshop.
