Christopher has had equal success working in comedy, visual narrative, documentary, stylised effects based projects and multiple combinations in-between. Regardless of his ability to completely inhabit these various styles and genres, his work always maintains a distinctive signature of strong performances, cinematic sensibilities and an obsessive commitment to concept and storytelling. 

After spending time as an exhibiting artist and finishing a degree in Media Art, Christopher formed his own film collective / production company ‘Krozm’ in 2007 and from there directed many memorable music videos for some of Australia’s most popular musicians. It is through this hands on / real world experience that he honed his skills in every aspect of the film-making process. 

Easily transitioning into the world of commercials, within his first 2 years his work won multiple accolades including a Young Directors Award at the 2012 Cannes Lions. More recently his work includes a music video starring Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood, Melancholia, The East) for Cut Copy’s ‘Free Your Mind’ which garnered worldwide media attention.
