Since his first First Person Arts StorySlam, Chris has been slinging stories that were instant favorites with FPA audiences. From tales of childhood fights, to fast food obsessions, to past career triumphs and missteps, story-lovers voted him “Audience Favorite” again and again.  

He moved onto guest judging and then hosting FPA StorySlams and even now that he has moved OUT of Philadelphia, Chris comes back every now and again to host.   Chris is true FPA family.
