After graduating BAA Chris moved to California and attended California State University, Long Beach, where he majored in Film and graduated in 2007. In 2013 he joined the DGA (Directors Guild of America) and currently works as an Assistant Director in television. He’s worked on such shows as “Good Luck Charlie” (Disney Channel), “Drunk History” (Comedy Central), “Will & Grace” (NBC), “Bunk’d” (Disney Channel), “Broke” (CBS).

“Being apart of a community of like-minded individuals gave me focus in life. Working in theatre taught me how to take risks and be confident. I moved 3000 miles away with out knowing anyone to follow my dreams and BAA is partially responsible for that. I was given so many wonderful experiences at BAA and I feel BAA helped shape me into the person I am today.”
