Chris is like a digital alchemist. I would give him all of these crazy, disparate parts and somehow he would pull them together to create pure gold!

Chris has always shown a deep understanding of his craft and an effortless ability to explain the more complex part of it to those outside the art of lighting. I highly recommend Chris both as a lighter and teacher of this art form.
