Chris was born in Melbourne but grew up in Kuranda in North Queensland. He loved taking the Silver Bullet (tin turtle) train down the Kuranda range to Cairns for high school during those years. He studied Performing Arts at James Cook University before moving to Sydney to work for the Aboriginal and Islander Dance theatre. He then moved into the film industry working in the art department on many productions such as Babe, Pricilla, and the Wiggles to name a few. In 1992 he took his first trip to Japan and fell in love with the country, food, culture, and people. He studied Japanese and returned to Japan every year for holidays. Chris began working as a coordinator for Japanese productions in the South Pacific and in 2012 moved to Tokyo. His love for Japan and all things Japanese has grown over this time, just going to the convenience store is still exciting for him!
