Author, screenwriter, comedy writer and film critic, Chris got to the final of the BBC’s Last Laugh sitcom writing competition in 2005 aged 22, the youngest writer in the competition. Judge Ash Atalla put Chris’s original sitcom “Videodome” into development with Talkback, and more work followed with Phil Clarke (Peep Show) at Objective, The Comedy Unit, RDF, Hat Trick and the BBC. His material has been performed on Radio 4 and Radio Scotland.
Chris wrote his first novel “Abattoir Jack” aged 23, which was published in 2009. He has written for Film International and Little White Lies since 2009, covering events with talent like Quentin Tarantino, Michael Mann and Johnny Depp, interviewing Oscar nominees, and reviewing tiny Turkish docu-realist features which no-one else wants to see.
Chris lives in Brighton where he is busy working away at far too many projects at once. Like most young male Brightonians, he is often to be seen wandering the streets with a guitar strapped to his back.
