Chris began acting as a child; appearing in plays by the age of 8 and graduated to pursuing his full-time acting career in Hollywood by age 14. He has had roles in TV, Film, and numerous commercials. Chris is a passionate teacher mentor and actor committed to the growth and development of young talent. Using the Haber Philosophy to guide his students into ‘creating the life’ of each person or character they are ‘living’. Being immersed in the industry from a young age allows Chris to see and know the business from a child’s perspective. After years of studying acting with premier acting teachers and at other various institutions, Chris finally found a fit being taught directly by Margie. “Living the life” resonated so profoundly that he dedicated himself to educating the youngest in the industry on how they too could begin to realize their dreams while maintaining the joy they have for acting; or as we call it, LIVING!
