Actor | Improviser | Third Thing
Born and raised in Los Angeles to an immigrant father from Honduras and a career criminal mom from Brooklyn, Chris trained at The Second City Conservatory in Chicago, iO West, and UCB LA.
He co created the webseries "7p10e," about a couple who begin dating long distance, that was later turned into TWO different pilots by CBS, Hilary Winston, Carter Bays, and Craig Thomas ("Real Life" and "My Time, Your Time"). Chris also appeared on "Cool Kids" on FOX and fulfilled a lifelong dream in 2019 when he performed exactly 100 shows Off-Broadway in NYC with the show "#DateMe."
Chris was hand-picked by award-winning comedian Kevin Pollak to be a part of the fully-improvised podcast, Alchemy This! which he performs with every week. He also teaches weekly improv workshops that have become wildly popular.
When the world isn't shut down he can be seen performing and teaching at The Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, CA. He plays with his multi- award-winning improv team, Heyday, as well as Pretty, Pretty Pony, and two-person team, Nice Chris. While the world IS shut down, he’s reading Eckhart Tolle, surfing, and playing with his puppy pug-mix, Sonny.
FOX's "The Cool Kids"
So many comedy legends in one scene. And me. "That's right!"
Over 30 episodes and with a cost of $88.00, "7p10e" was LA Weekly's pick for top 10 webseries (#2!) and was later made into two different pilots for CBS with Hilary Winston, Carter Bays, and Craig Thomas- "Real Life" and "My Time, Your Time."
Co-created and co-starring the insanely talented, Avital Ash.
