Born and raised in Troy, MI, Christopher began performing at ten years old, and fell in love with musical theatre from the very beginning. He performed in countless musicals with community theatres across the Metro-Detroit area and went on to attend a performing arts high school. Christopher attended Michigan State University, attaining Bachelor of Arts degrees in both Theatre and Arts & Humanities, as well as minors in Musical Theatre and Dance. Aside from countless performance opportunities in musical theatre and dance, he assisted many productions as assistant choreographer, director, and dance captain. Christopher’s final thesis project included writing and conceiving Recovery, a new musical focused on drama therapy techniques. Graciously, he owes much of his professional success to his voice teacher and mentor, Broadway’s Alisa Hauser.
