How’s everyone doing? Good, I hope. Thanks for coming! I’m Chad. Originally from Boston. East coast! I’d like to thank everyone in the cast for their creative talent and drive. Thanks to Deborah Geffner for her wonderful direction. Thanks to the 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company. Oh, I’ve been out here for almost 5 years (I think?).

After a brief stint in the U.S. Army, Chris completed his degree in Theater at U.C. Berkeley. While pursuing acting in Los Angeles, Chris chose to reenter the military service in 2005, serving as a NATO peace keeper in the former Yugoslavia. As a returning U.S. Army combat veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, Chris has been able to see firsthand how expansive the Global War on Terror is, and has been able to accurately and honestly reflect that in his acting.

Chris is represented by Commercials Unlimited and All American Rascals Talent Agencies.
