I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife, twin boys (and soon to be girl), and dog Ashby.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University . While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning and helped pioneer their online school there. After that, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team.

I continue to collaborate with friends on film and other creative projects, keeping my skillset fresh and ready to teach you.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.

As a young teenager, Christian threw himself into the world of broadcasting, specifically as an on-air personality, journalist, and sports play-by-play voice. The path was not clear at the time, but consistent effort led him to more and more opportunities.

While attending Chapman University, Christian jumped at every opportunity he got to practice his skills in professional environments. He was a television news reporter for a small station in Orange County, Garden Grove Channel 3. He was the play-by-play voice for Long Beach State baseball, basketball, and volleyball.

Shortly after graduating, Christian became a professional television news reporter on the beautiful Central Coast of California. He worked for KCOY Channel 12, the CBS affiliate for Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. He shot the video, wrote the script, and edited the finished product for each one of his stories. Christian quickly became recognized as a rising talent in the television news scene.

In 2014, KPIX-5 CBS San Francisco offered Christian a reporter position at their station. Christian became the youngest reporter in the SF Bay Area, the #6 news market in the country.

Christian is now pursuing another challenge: using the skills he's learned over many years to live a lifestyle on his own terms.
