A Brooklyn born filmmaker, Chris discovered his passion for film through documenting a series of international videogame tournaments while in highschool. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch film program he began working on feature films before moving to Los Angeles to turn his attention toward commercial and documentary work. As a director and cinematographer he focuses on presenting stories with emotional resonance – favoring naturalism and images that reveal essentiality in a subject. His work for clients such as National Geographic, American Express, Columbia Sportswear, NY Times, and Tastemade have lead him into conflict zones, rugged mountainscapes, and jungles both natural and urban across every continent (except Antartica). In 2015 he received an Emmy award for his cinematography in the documentary Visioneer.
