Originally starting out as an artist/writer, Chris graduated to strictly writing due to a decreasing amount of free time and the discovery he was just better at it. Though he had been making comics of some kind for most of his life, his first foray into comics came in 2005 when he joined the staff of the Spider-Man fan site Spiderfan as a reviewer. Colleague Robert J. Sodaro then introduced him to the Comicbook Artists Guild in 2006, a national networking organization that brings creators of all levels together.|
Chris' first publication break came with CAG's 7th anthology issue. Then-president Keith J. Murphey approached Chris about finishing off the origin of the group's mascot, Commander CAG, as well as adapting a story he submitted to fit a character Murphey co-created for an earlier issue.
In 2007, Chris joined the online blog dedicated to books, Estella's Revenge, as their comic writer and reviewer. He also joined with 215ink and did advanced reviews for several indy comics, as well as weekly reviews of the week's new releases.
In 2008, Chris' first editorial credit came into play when he was invited by Phil Clark to be part of Iconic, CAG's all-ages anthology focusing on historic and public domain characters. Chris also ended up writing a unifying Grandpa bumper story conceived with Murphey for the book. Sodaro helped Chris fulfill a life-long dream of working for Marvel by recommending him for writing duties on Marvel's new Official Index series; on which several Spiderfan staffers also worked. Chris was asked to audition to be the replacement writing on Guild Works Productions' Hell's Blood series by creator Hector Rodriguez. He ended up co-writing the second issue with Liam Webb due to both their submissions being coincidentally similar.
In 2009, Chris became the publication coordinator for CAG and proceeded to head up the next issue of Iconic, their first prose anthology Worlds Beyond, and the return of their regular anthology series with a new name and format. Chris was also made editor-in-chief of the reorganized GWP, now called Guild Works Publications, and is helping to oversee their pin-up book Best Shots, their zombie anthology Worst Case Scenario: Outbreak, and Hell's Blood, of which he will also continue to write.
