Christopher was born and raised in Southern Maine. After graduating from Westbrook High School in 1981, he attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Upon graduation from the Academy he embarked on a career in the theater. His focus became musical theater and he found himself performing throughout the country in various leading roles, including the part of Marius in the National Tour of “Les Miserables”. In 1991 he made his Broadway debut in the original cast of “Miss Saigon” and was later awarded the leading role of Chris. He also performed on Broadway as Ludovic in the musical “Passion” by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.
After working for several years in the theater, though he continued to sing, Christopher decided to make a change. He moved to Philadelphia and began a career in Real Estate Management and Development. He was an integral member of an award winning home building team in Springfield, Delaware County. His primary role was in customization. It was at this time that he also rediscovered his passion for the visual arts.
In 2003 Christopher was honored with the “Westbrook High School Distinguished Alumni Award, Class of 1981”. That same year he began taking classes at a number of local art centers including the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, Pa. and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. In 2009 he won “Best in Show” at the Wayne Art Center in their Student Works Exhibition. In 2011 he completed the Continuing Education Core Curriculum Program from PAFA, where he is currently enrolled as a full-time painting major. In 2014 Christopher recorded and released some of his favorite Broadway songs in the CD Renaissance. He is also a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography and has trained as a voice over artist at Edge Studio in New York City.
