Chris on the Double Cross set
CUT TO:

In the mid-90's, I emigrated from England and now live in Orange County, California.

Before turning to screenwriting full-time, I established and ran a specialized computer software company.

When I'm not writing, I'm typically plying the 405 freeway to attend meetings in LA -- with the aid of my carpool-sticker equipped Prius the pain has been eased.

I have also tried my hand at directing, and made a 35mm short, Double Cross, a couple of years ago. Great fun and a wonderful learning experience, but my first love remains writing for the screen.
