Chris made a name for himself in high school. In the late 2000's he was in a band which had some success. Together they toured Texas and New Mexico. The bands first single was a hit and earned immediate radio time. The group disbanded in late 2010, after they had opened up to 15,000 people for the rock band Chevelle. This was about the time Chris started getting more and more into film and photography.
Mad Octopus Productions is the brain child of Chris. After being part of several projects ranging from film and graphic design to complete studio productions. You can catch his first producer role as well as drumming on Katie Salazar's hit single Mr. Chivalry which is available on all major outlets for music. Chris decided to start his own company shortly there after and enlisted the help of his talented friends and family to come along on this endeavor. The Octopus is one of the most mysterious creatures in the world, which is what makes them so fascinating.
Chris loves the outdoors and enjoys hiking whenever possible. He is a Subaru Ambassador and realized after purchasing his first Subie, that should have been done many years ago. You can often catch him parked somewhere, hatch open, cameras on tripods, shooting a time lapse or long exposure shots. If you spot Chris on vacation then the chances are, there is a drone somewhere above you. Don't be shy, come say Hi! and take a selfie or get in the vlog!
