Christian has worked as supervising story producer and story producer across multiple genres of reality television, including docu-follow, docu-soap, and VO-driven high-octane adventure programming. His work includes "The Real World," "Ice Road Truckers," “Mountain Men,” "Bring It!," and one of the highest rated seasons of "Little People, Big World." 

Yup - it’s no secret that television production can get stressful at times. Christian’s philosophy is all about balance: keeping a sense of humor and a cool head under pressure. It’s a joy to create stories that move viewers, and Christian brings that energy to every project.

He has even dabbled in acting … watch closely the opening titles to Fight of the Living Dead Season 3 on YouTube Premium … I mean really closely … and you will see Christian as the Mad Doctor drilling into the head of a zombie.
