I am a working actor from Chicago as well as a member of SAG/AFTRA since 2009. Since graduating from Illinois State University in 2003, I hit the ground running and worked with Chicago Dance Crash for 3 years as a company member. I solidified my theater acting muscles for 4 years before moving to LA in 2007 and worked on 2 films, Heist and Ingles Ya in addition to national commercials for Soapnet, Gaterade and Pepsi, just to name a few. My most recent film, Markham Tactical premiered on August 6th in Chicago and will be debuting on the festival circuit in 2016. I also made my TV show debut in 2010 on Chicago Code. I followed that up with appearances on Mob Doctor, Crisis, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Empire. My theater work has included stops at Steppenwolf Theater, The Goodman Theater, Chicago Shakespeare, Timeline Theater, Lifeline Theater, Illinois Theater Center.

As a student with zero acting experience, Christian is very patient and encouraging. Im learning a lot about analyzing a character/plot and always look forward to our next lesson.

For my first lesson we touched base on the foundations that I knew and gave me great insight.

He's a really great guy and he cares a lot about his students. My most favorite thing about him is that he has legitimate acting experience in television and film, and doesn't charge $30-$60 per hour per class. He is a busy man, but he always makes sure that he has time for his students. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to take up acting :)

He's very straight forward and doesn't sugar coat things. To me, that's the only way you learn and I believe he understands that. I look forward to continue working with Christian in the future!
